The Big Purple Was a Prelude to Love, Generosity Toward ACU - Tommy ('64) and Kay ('63) Maples
Endowed Scholarships and Targeted Gifts to Special Programs
Tommy (’64) and Kay (Maples ’63) Lyons recognize that Christian Higher education requires both opportunity and tools, supported by current gifts and endowment.
True to those principles, they are generous benefactors for ACU programs dear to their hearts – the music department the Big Purple Band.
The Marguerite and Roger W. Lyons Endowed scholarship honors Tommy’s parents and celebrates their own 50 years of marriage, a relationship that began while they were in the Big Purple together.
The Lyon’s current and endowed scholarships – and assistance purchasing instruments for the symphonic and marching bands – provide a great boost for music students, enabling their participation and enhancing the quality of their experience.
