Darryl & Christy Paterson
Darryl & Christy Paterson have been married for almost 29 years and have lived in Springdale, Ark. since 2000. Their oldest son Braden, a 2013 sports medicine alumnus, heard about JBU through their church and formed priceless relationships living at JBU. Their son Blake is a second semester junior this fall, studying digital illustration. “We believe that the education Braden received at JBU was fantastic, but also that the God-honoring, iron-sharpening Christian friendships he made while at JBU were the most valuable asset he received,” Christy said. “We joined the PAC when Braden was a freshman at JBU to support him and JBU in any way possible. We love getting to know other PAC parents and the JBU staff and leadership. We can’t imagine ‘our college experience’ without being a part of the PAC.” The Paterson family loves road trips. They visited the Grand Canyon last December, checking one more off the list before their kids are all grown.
