Regina Walker and Bob Walker Endowed Scholarship

Type: Endowed

Donor: Maxine Walker

Established: 2009

This scholarship was created by Maxine Walker in honor of her husband, Bob. and her daughter, Regina. Bob served four years in the U.S. Air Force and, in his civilian life, trained in maintenance and refrigeration.  Bob and Maxine (Evans) were married 42 years before the Lord called him home.

Bob was the father of two sons, Michael and Daniel, and daughter Regina.  He became an ordained deacon and felt the Lord calling him to preaching in 1991.  He attended JBU to further his biblical education and served as a pastor for two churches and filled in for several others.  He taught senior men’s Sunday School at Harvard Avenue Baptist Church, and was the chaplain for Siloam Springs Memorial Hospital.  If you were to meet Bob on any given day, he would share from God’s word about how much Jesus loves us and how he gave his life for us.  This was his most beloved calling and work, serving and telling others about his Savior, Jesus Christ.  Bob created this scholarship at JBU to help young people pursue full-time ministry as a pastor or youth pastor.

Regina Walker was a beautiful, loving young lady.  She loved people and sports, made friends easily, and always had a smile on her face.  She loved spending time with her dad and mom, hugging and sitting in their laps.  Regina accepted the Lord as her personal savior at the age of nine.  The Lord called her home to be with him at the age of 10.  She continues to be missed by her family.
