John E. Tate (1919-2009) & Evie Tate (1928-2009)
To do good things in this world, you must know who you are and what gives meaning to your life. In recognition of Evie and John Tate’s commitment to Single Parent Scholarship Fund of Benton County and, in celebration of their lives, their faith and their legacy of giving to others, Jackie Piatt Spedding and Mike Piatt, want to honor students of SPSFBC for their commitment to building a future for themselves and their children through education. Their fervent hope is that these students will bless others as they have been blessed. May the following questions addressing the import of our lives give us a reason to reflect on lives well lived. Not how did they die, but how did they live? Not what did they gain, but what did they give? These are the units to measure the worth of each who departs life, regardless of birth.
