Riley and Sara Albertson attended Howard Payne University in the mid-1960’s. HPU was extremely important to them both as it helped them become the Christian adults that would have a major impact on students, church members and their communities throughout their lives.  Both Riley and Sara found they needed financial assistance to attend school and received small scholarships that made it possible.  For this reason, Riley established a memorial scholarship at Howard Payne to equip students to advance God’s Kingdom and continue the ministry of Riley and Sara.
