Mr. and Mrs. Roy Blackmon's interest in John Brown University began when they become interested in missions as a result of a trip they took to Africa. While in Africa, they visited Rift Valley Academy. That visit resulted in an interest in helping missionary kids attend college. Friends told them about the good work being done at JBU, so they decided to make their gift  to JBU. Roy Blackmon was a career Army man. After retirement from the service, he was a school counselor in Visalia, CA. Roy died in 1988, and Marion (Elizabeth) died in 1999.
