The Value of Education
By Cori Cress
As a student recently discharged from the army, Elder Don Copsey '52 experienced the difficulty of paying his way through college. He understands the struggles students face in order to support themselves while earning an education. The Copseys want to help future students receive a quality education and offer them the opportunity to create enriching experiences at Union College as they did.
The Copseys hold many fond memories of Union College. Elder Copsey was rebaptized during his time at Union, which led to his decision to enter the ministry. He also met his wife, Lenora Herr, at the college. Lenora enjoyed taking music at Union College and later played the organ and piano at the churches where her husband pastored. After graduating from Union, Elder Copsey worked for the Lake Union Conference for 20 years and ministered in 18 different churches. During their 60 years of marriage, the Copseys and their two sons also served in the mission field in Brazil.
The Copseys recognize the value of a Christian education. They have entrusted the college to use their estate gift where it is needed most to benefit future students. Union College greatly appreciates the Copseys' contribution and their desire to see students succeed. Their future gift will impact many lives and assist young people in achieving a higher education.
If you would like to follow the Copseys' example and provide for Union College in your estate plans, contact Ken Farrow at 402-486-2600, Ext. 2200 or email@example.com to explore the best options for you.
