This scholarship was established in memory of Jerry Booher. Jerry G. Booher was a free-spirited, inquisitive man, who had a passion for life and love for dirt bikes, Corvettes, power boating, sailing, woodworking, traveling, technology and teaching. Whether it was poring over the Word of God or working with some of the earliest computers at IBM, Jerry was hands on and committed to understanding how things worked and how to master them. A life-long learner in the computer field and professor for 35 years, Jerry loved teaching, loved technology, and loved his students. He established the Jerry G. Booher scholarship for Talbot students as way to fulfill the great commission through gospel patronage. It was his desire to help students develop a deep understanding of the scriptures so they can teach the truth and help people grow in their faith.
