Bernie Conklin was development director at the University of Oregon’s Newman Center from 2014-2016. Though he died in June 2016, his legacy lives on in all the wonderful ways he has touched students and permanent community members during his years of ministry at Newman. We are establishing a scholarship fund in honor of him so Newman can continue the wonderful ministries he championed at Newman – as development director for the church and center, student coach, and father figure to many students. The scholarship will go to a student currently attending Lane Community College.
Please prayerfully consider how you might financially support this fund. You can donate through envelopes or through our online giving, via Parishsoft. If you are giving through check, just note on it, “Bernie Conklin Fund.” Don’t forget to also consider including the fund in your will.
