Jerry & Marilyn Batts Family Scholarship

A conversation with Jerry Batts and Marilyn Taylor Batts.

Why did you choose to create a scholarship at Auburn University?
We wanted to help students.

What would you want the recipients of this scholarship to know about the person for whom it is named?
We are grateful for the generosity of those Auburn men and women who preceded us and made our Auburn experiences possible.

Tell us about your Auburn story, favorite tradition, a “War Eagle!” moment, or what Auburn has meant to you.
Auburn will always be a special place for us. We were blessed to have the opportunity to attend Auburn University.

What do you hope your recipients gain through this scholarship?
Our hope is that each recipient grows in wisdom and receives the true Auburn Spirit and lives a life of worth. We also hope each recipient will one day choose to support Auburn University with their time and treasure.
