Faith Leissner Leadership Endowed Scholarship

Type: Endowed

Donor: Estate of Linda Faith Leissner

Established: 2008

Linda Faith Leissner learned of John Brown University through KGER, a prominent Christian radio station in Long Beach, California, that JBU owned and operated for 40 years.  KGER was one of many radio stations that broadcasted founder John E. Brown Sr.’s messages.  Faith listened regularly in the mornings.  JBU’s Vice President for University Advancement, at the time the university received her estate gift, said of Ms. Leissner, “Ms. Leissner epitomizes people who want their lives to continue on through the lives of Christian young people.  I cannot think of a better remembrance for someone who was dedicated to the ministry and work of John Brown University in the lives of thousands of young people over the years.”
