Heather Benner Memorial Endowed Scholarship

Type: Endowed

Donor: William and Janis Benner

Established: 2001

Mr. and Mrs. William Benner created this scholarship in memory of their daughter, Heather, who died while attending JBU.  William was with the United States Post Office for over 40 years, and a postmaster for most of that time.  He is retired now and enjoys writing software programs.  He and his wife discovered JBU when they frequented a camp for Native American children in northeastern Oklahoma.  On one visit, they drove over to visit campus. Heather liked it enough to return for her education.
