Bill and Beulah Nemeth Endowed Scholarship

R.D. "Mike" and Helen Milam

Type: Endowed

Donor: R.D. "Mike" and Helen Milam

Established: 1991

Growing up, Mike Milam was close to his Aunt Beulah and Uncle Bill Nemeth.  They influenced him in many areas of his life including Christianity. When the Milams moved to Bella Vista they became members of the Community Church there under the pastorate of Allan Hunter and he introduced them (again) to John Brown University where they have attended many events and become good friends of the college. 

Upon the death of this Aunt Beulah, Mike inherited a gift from her.  He wanted to use the gift to honor his aunt and uncle, but was uncertain of who the recipient should be.  Helen, Mike’s wife, remembered that Aunt Beulah had loved John Brown University and had wanted Mike to attend.  Mike decided to honor his aunt and uncle by creating a scholarship in their memory for JBU students with financial need who are children of missionaries and pastors.
