Bob & Gayle Riley Servant Leadership Awards


Dr. Bob Riley, President Emeritus of ETBU, and his wife Gayle have established a scholarship to recognize students who are outstanding examples of servant leadership during their time at East Texas Baptist University.

Each fall, two students are chosen to receive this award.  Students are nominated by faculty, staff, and fellow students for this honor and then submit an application for consideration.
