Alison and George Gratton

Established: 2020

Alison Gratton graduated from JBU in 1987 with a degree in broadcasting and then received a pharmacy degree from the University of South Carolina in 1994. She currently works as an inspector with the South Carolina Board of Pharmacy after working for many years as a retail pharmacist. George Gratton earned his GED in 2005 after spending 22 years just one credit short of his diploma. He then received an associate's degree in 2007 and an A.A.S. in HVAC/R in 2013 from Midlands Technical College. He currently works as a commercial HVAC technician.

George and Alison met and fell in love in elementary school, but took the scenic route before getting married in 2001. They love their cats, their home and their families. The Grattons also love when God uses them to help others and hope this scholarship will make a Christ-centered education more accessible to more people.

Alison's parents, Ronald and Sandra Barber, were amazing Christian parents and good stewards of their money. This scholarship is a way to honor their legacy.
