Donald J. Carlyon served as Delta College President from 1964 to 1993. On his 25th anniversary as President, more than 1,000 people gathered to raise dollars to establish this endowment, as part of a “Truly Chocolate” scholarship fundraiser. The Carlyons did more than lead Delta College through a quarter century of success. They dedicated their lives to the institution. The Carlyons came to Michigan from Nebraska, and raised five children while starting Delta College on the road to national prominence as one of America’s leading community colleges.
