Jack and Libbie Key Family Scholarship

Jack and Libbie Key Family Scholarship

A conversation with Jack B. Key III.

Why did you choose to create a scholarship at Auburn University?
My parents, my two children, and I enjoyed our time at Auburn. Three generations of our family all share a love for the University and its culture. We wanted to help others from our area to enjoy the Auburn experience with a little less of a financial burden.

What would you want the recipients of this scholarship to know about the person for whom it is named?
I am retired from the real estate industry in Columbus, Ga. We live at Lake Harding now and enjoy spending a good bit our time in Auburn at various events. Both of my children are full-time in Christian youth ministry with Young Life. Libbie and I are also active in Christian ministries and various organizations that we’re passionate about. I enjoy golf, hunting, woodworking, and water sports.

Tell us about your Auburn story, favorite tradition, a “War Eagle!” moment, or what Auburn has meant to you.
We enjoy tailgating with friends at Auburn football games in the Fall. We also enjoy attending basketball games and other sporting events on occasion.

What do you hope your recipients gain through this scholarship?
We hope this scholarship provides a little more financial flexibility to make their experience more enjoyable.
