Remembering Former Beta Alpha Psi Faculty Advisor and Regional Director, Dr. J. Marion Posey

"I had the privilege of serving on the Beta Alpha Psi (BAP) Board of Directors with Dr. Marion Posey.," said Jan Taylor Morris, former Beta Alpha Psi President. "Marion was a wonderful colleague on the board, with an amazing institutional memory of all things BAP, and he was a good and dear friend. Marion shared his wealth of knowledge about BAP with those of us who served with him and made our organization a stronger and more vibrant one because of his involvement. I always looked forward to seeing him and his wife, Ann, who often accompanied him on his BAP adventures.  He will be truly missed and my deepest sympathies go out to Ann and the remainder of his family."
