September 9, 2011

A new Prairie Bible College Scholarship has been estalished to honor the memory of long-time staff member, Miss Joan Chapman who passed away on September 9, 2011 at the age of 96.

  • recipient must be of Asian origin
  • recipient must be a returning student to Prairie Bible College
  • recipient must exhibit Christ-like character and a servant heart within the PBI community

The amount distributed each year will be a minimum of $200, and will increase as the fund grows.

Her memorial service was held Wednesday, September 28, 2011 here in Three Hills.
