Tim and Patty Springer Annual Scholarship

This scholarship was established in 2015 by Tim and Patty Springer. Their daughter, Hannah, attended the university summer volleyball camp. It was during a summer session that Tim felt the Lord calling them to support the university's mission. Tim's family has had a long history of service to the country going back to the Revolutionary War. Because of this, the Springers have a strong desire to support students who are descendants of current and deceased United States veterans.
