Know someone who deserves recognition?

Winona Health Foundation is seeking nominations for the Ben & Adith Miller Community Service Tribute.

“We’ve made the nomination form easy to complete, and this is a wonderful opportunity to recognize someone who makes a positive difference in our community,” said Betsy Midthun, vice president of Community Engagement at Winona Health.

The Ben & Adith Miller Community Service Tribute is awarded to an outstanding person, persons or community organization who has made a significant difference and positive impact on the Winona region and/or Winona Health. Candidates will be evaluated on their generosity of time, spirit, energy and/or charitable donations. Nomination forms are available online at and will be accepted through Friday, February 9.

The Ben & Adith Miller Community Service Tribute was established by the late community philanthropist, Benjamin A. Miller, in the name of his wife, Adith. In addition to a special recognition dinner at Cedar Valley Restaurant, the family of Ben and Adith Miller and RTP Company honors the recipient with a $25,000 contribution to the Ben & Adith Miller Patient Care Fund to assist area individuals and families.

Steve Groth was recognized as the recipient of last year’s Ben & Adith Miller Community Service Tribute. Groth has contributed countless hours to the community through his involvement with the Ridgeway Volunteer Fire Department and First Responders, Ridgeway Community School’s major renovation projects, the Ridgeway Community Association Board, Ridgeway Athletic Committee, little league baseball, and coordinating numerous community fundraising or health and wellness events.
