Alumni donate new lion statues

June 5, 2014

_DSC7700 4.14_BlantonLions1Bryan College announces a gift of six new Bryan lion statues, which are being installed around campus. One pair proudly gazes out at each location – the upper and lower entrances of Summers Gymnasium, and the soccer fields.

These statues were bestowed on the college by Don Blanton ’76, of the Bryan College Board of Trustees, and his wife Connie ’76. The Blantons’ deep passion for the college and pride for the institution as Bryan alumni prompted them to bless the college with the gift, which they believe will add to the aesthetics of the campus.

The Blantons were named Alumni of the Year in 2012 and are widely known for their warmth and their love for the Lord and for the Bryan community, having hosted many alumni, friends, and students in their Atlanta home over the years. Don Blanton is an acclaimed speaker on financial and investment services, and as the president of MoneyTrax is considered a top trainer in the industry.
