David B. Miller and Carolyn Lacy Miller

David B. Miller ’72, ’73, a member of the SMU Board of Trustees, and his wife, Carolyn Lacy Miller committed $10 million toward the expansion and renovation of Moody Coliseum April 28.

“As a former Mustang basketball player, David has enjoyed the excitement of athletic success in this facility, and he and Carolyn have attended numerous ceremonies in Moody,” says SMU President R. Gerald Turner. “Their generous gift builds the momentum to secure additional funding.”

The Millers have been generous long-time donors to academic and athletic programs at SMU. Gifts have created the David B. Miller Endowed Professorship in Cox School of Business, the Don Jackson Center for Financial Studies in Cox and the EnCap Investments & LCM Group Alternative Asset Management Center, also in Cox, as well as the David and Carolyn Miller Annual Scholarships. They also have provided support for the Crum Basketball Center, the men’s basketball program and Circle of Champions in the Department of Athletics.

Miller is co-founder and partner of EnCap Investments L.P., a private equity firm based in Dallas. He is also president of the David B. Miller Family Foundation, which Carolyn serves as vice president.
