Ruth Beal established the Paul Wagner Memorial Endowed Scholarship to honor her son and remember his time as a student at John Brown University. Paul was born in Akron, Ohio and later lived in Cuyahoga Falls, where he served as the local president of Youth for Christ. Paul was a champion high school swimmer and a four-year letterman on the JBU swim team from 1966- 1970. He was part of the team that set a record at that time for the longest team swim relay. Paul passed away in 2007 at the age of 59.
