John Andrew Colvin Memorial Scholarship
The John Andrew Colvin Memorial Scholarship was established by the Colvin family and friends in 1987 in honor and in memory of John Andrew Colvin, a Northeast Louisiana University agriculture student who loved nature and the land, and generously offered his friendship and support to all who knew him. In 2005 the scholarship was also designated in honor and in memory of Donna Martin Robbins, a 1985 graduate of Northeast Louisiana University School of Nursing who compassionately shared her talents, skills, and joy of living with her family, her patients, and her community. Northeast Louisiana University is now renamed ULM.
