Fallon Scholarship 

DEADLINE: SPRING 2014 

Fallon familyRodney J. Fallon, the beloved father of three JMU College of Business students, had a passion for innovating and creating new and exciting business ideas.  He always had a beautiful smile on his face, an infectious sense of humor, and a positive outlook for the day.  He lived each day inspired by God an d Jesus and excitedly embraced every minute he shared with his family.  In addition to starting several profitable businesses, Rod applied his enthusiasm and entrepreneurial spirit to raising his family and coaching the youth in the community.  Rod loved everything about JMU! He regularly  visited his children there and enjoyed walking the Quad, eating at Top Dog, and looking at the rocks and minerals in the Mineral Museum on campus. 

To honor Rodney Fallon, who passed away in September 2011, his family created this scholarship to help a deserving JMU student in good standing.  We want to recognize and support a JMU undergraduate student of high morals, strong character, and good academic standing who is pursuing an exciting and viable entrepreneurial endeavor.
