During the Stegall Foundation’s quarterly board of directors meeting on March 21, 2019, Mr. John C. Bullard was named Director Emeritus. Bullard and his late wife, Mary Ellen, were instrumental in the creation of the Stegall Foundation.
“I credit John with being one of the founders of our foundation,” says Dr. Karl K. Stegall. “Our foundation was given birth in John and Mary Ellen’s home and they have strongly supported our efforts through the years.” Over John’s tenure on the board, 138 seminary students were awarded scholarships. “John’s generosity is unparalleled and his dedication to our mission is steadfast.”
Before the foundation was formally established, Stegall notes that Bullard also gave 23.5 years of “silent support” to seminary students through generous giving.
