J. Leonard and Mary Lou McDaniel
Endowed Scholarships in the College of Business and the College of Education- Master of Science in College Student Personnel Services
Because they believe higher education is important, Leonard and Mary Lou McDaniel established a scholarship endowment to assist students in earning their degrees.
Having grown up in small towns in Northeast Arkansas, Leonard and Mary Lou did not meet until they were enrolled in graduate-level business education courses at A-State. With that course, a friendship, courtship and 42-year marriage resulted in much happiness and careers for the couple on the Jonesboro campus. At her retirement in 1993, Mary Lou was pronounced emeritus assistant dean of students; Leonard was named emeritus registrar when he retired in 1996.
They noted A-State has given them outstanding educational opportunities, including meaningful recognition and honors. Having traveled throughout the world, the McDaniels continue to enjoy their retirement and their involvement with Arkansas State University.
