This endowment has been established to honor the memory of Robert D Blue Jr., who was a life-long educator and philanthropist. Based on the belief that education and job training are essential tools in eradicating poverty and improving the quality of life for future generations, this endowment will help to realize the potential of Morgan County young adults by providing funds for student vocational training.

Additionally, funding will supplement and enhance vocational training for jobs opportunities that pay a living wage. Such employment may include jobs in metal work, wood working, electrical, plumbing, mechanical, etc..
