Byron Evers Memorial Scholarship
The Byron Evers Scholarship was established by Brenda Evers in memory of Byron. Byron was born January 22, 1948, in Cairo, Illinois, and passed away on April 25, 2017. The family established the Byron Evers Memorial Scholarship at Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, Colorado, where Byron taught as the Director of the Mass Communication Program. Byron cherished all of his family of friends from Oklahoma and Colorado: his fellow journalists (newspaper writers, editors, and photographers), his college professors and students, his hunting buddies, his church companions, and his car club members.
