Bohons Endow Study Abroad Fund


Stan and Doris Bohon

r. Stan and Doris Bohon of Kirksville have established an endowed fund designed to assist students who participate in Truman’s renowned study abroad program.

The inaugural award of $500 will be presented to a student for the spring 2008 semester.

The fund was established by the longtime Kirksville residents in honor of their association with the University and to provide greater access to study abroad opportunities for students. Current students who have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher, are natives of one of the original 25 counties of the Northeast region of normal schools, and have a record of service in civic, church and school activities will be considered for the award.

Doris Bohon is a 1943 graduate of Truman and served two terms on the Foundation Board of Directors. She is also a recipient of Truman’s Distinguished Alumni Service Award. Stan Bohon operated a dental practice in Kirksville for many years. The Bohons are retired and spend the winters in Fort Myers, Fla.

The gift is part of Truman State University’s first-ever comprehensive campaign titled “Bright Minds, Bright Futures” with a goal of $30 million to generate private support for student scholarships, student enrichment initiatives, faculty development and enhancements to the athletic program.
