Honoring John Robinson

BERNE, Ind.--DRG, a publishing and product-fulfillment company with offices in Big Sandy, Texas, and Berne, has established the DRG John S. Robinson Memorial Scholarship at Ball State University, Muncie, Ind.

Mr. Robinson served as DRG's CEO from 1989 until his death, in January 2006. He had been a Church of God member since about 1950, when he was 5 years old, and was an elder in the Worldwide Church of God and later the United Church of God.

From 1995 to 1997 Mr. Robinson published the independent Church of God newspaper In Transition, which was the inspiration for the founding of The Journal in 1997.

A company newsletter said the new scholarship is meant to provide financial support for "Ball State undergraduate journalism students who demonstrate active involvement in the journalism department, with preference to students majoring in magazine publishing."

Mr. Robinson was a faculty member for many years at Ambassador College, the University of Texas at Tyler and Ball State, where he served as an adjunct professor in the magazine-journalism program.
The university will award its first scholarship in honor of Mr. Robinson for the 2008-09 academic year.
