She has helped raise a combined $90,000 over the years, gathering donated auction items and working numerous hours to set up and run the auctions. She’s also an organizer for the North Central Texas Section-American Water Works Association’s Casino Night, helping to raise about $25,000.

Lissa’s commitment to universal water access includes volunteering with an international nonprofit though which she lived in a community in Uganda to design facilities that are sustainable, affordable and transformational.

Water For People honored Lissa during a virtual awards ceremony on June 15. The 2020 Miller winners also will be recognized in person during ACE21, the AWWA’s Annual Conference & Exposition scheduled for July 2021 in San Diego.
