Donor Stories

David met his wife-to-be, Sharon, in Cathedral Choir during his junior year at JBU. The couple both graduated with degrees in music, went on to teach and now work for a rural telecommunications enterprise.

Years ago, David and Sharon gave their first gift to the JBU Scholarship Fund to support the work-study program. They have continued to support the University every since, joining what is now known as the Founder’s Circle in 2009.

 “Sharon and I have received many blessings during a wonderful life together. These have included children, a home and meaningful work. We have never been ‘rich,’ but we take our stewardship of what God has given us very seriously,” David said. “We feel sincere gratitude toward JBU — a Christian university who made a college education possible for both of us when neither of our families could afford such on their own.”
