The Martyn Family Endowed M.K. Scholarship

Type: Endowed

Donor: Jay and Lynda Martyn

Established: 2008

This scholarship is in honor of Taylor and Allison Martyn who met their freshman year at JBU.  Taylor was involved in iLead and was a teacher’s assistant.  Allison was a member of the swim team and active in Passion groups.  Both were RA’s, volunteered with Young Life, and taught a Bible study for high school sophomores at Harvard Baptist Church.  They married after their 2003 graduation and began searching for a mission organization that would use both Taylor’s digital media skills and Allison’s community development passion.  Their desire to enter the mission field came through the Lord’s leading, many cross-cultural experiences, and guidance from family.  They now serve with SIM in Kenya.  Jay and Lynda Martyn are grateful for the education and mentoring their children received at JBU, and for their opportunities to grow spiritually, intellectually, and socially.
