J. Marion Adams Divisional Scholarships

These scholarships are awarded in honor of the late J. Marion Adams. Adams was born on May 19, 1903, in Linty, Arkansas, and was a native of Conway County. He received a bachelor's degree from State Teacher's College (now the University of Central Arkansas in Conway) and a master's degree from George Peabody College in Nashville, Tennessee. He then began his career serving as both a teacher and a principal. Adams joined the Arkansas Department of Education in 1939. He was a pioneer in Arkansas' Vocation Education System and served as the state director of vocational education from 1945-1974, a span of some 29 years. During his tenure as director, he played an integral role in the formation of Arkansas' vocational school system. Adams was a lifetime member of the American Vocational Association and received that organization's Outstanding Service Award in 1971. A recipient of many vocational achievement awards for outstanding service, Adams dedicated his life to the education of others.
