Deery Family Endowed Scholarship

Deery Family Endowed Scholarship

A conversation with Jeff and Jennifer Deery.

Why did you choose to create a scholarship at Auburn University?
We wanted to give back to the school that has given so much to us! We met at Auburn and were both graduates of the College of Liberal Arts.

What would you want the recipients of this scholarship to know about the person for whom it is named?
To quote our favorite creed …. we believe in Auburn and LOVE it!

Tell us about your Auburn story, favorite tradition, a “War Eagle!” moment, or what Auburn has meant to you.
We love hearing the band play the fight song when traveling to watch our Auburn Tigers play!

What do you hope your recipients gain through this scholarship?
We hope that this scholarship will give recipients the opportunity to focus their energy on their academics without having to worry about the financial aspect.
