Scholarship Name: Lyle W. and Bernice J. Robinson Memorial Scholarship
Created to Support: Graduates of Northwest Nazarene University
About this Scholarship:
This scholarship was established by Rev. Dr. Edwin Robinson (1951-2017) and Mrs. Nancy Robinson (1949-2020) in memory of Edwin's parents, Lyle and Bernice. Lyle W. Robinson (1914-1988) was an alumnus of Northwest Nazarene College (NNU, formerly NNC) and a 1951 graduate of Nazarene Theological Seminary. Lyle pastored Nazarene churches in the Northwestern part of the United States and served as an administrator and teacher at NNC. He served as a military chaplain in the United States Army at home and abroad. During the Korean War conflict, Chaplain Robinson was assigned to shepherd the troops on the front line during a particularly heavy exchange of gunfire. He crawled on his belly under the gunfire to provide comfort to the wounded and seek medical attention for those that had been separated from the field medic. His servanthood earned him both the Bronze and Silver Star for meritorious service beyond the call of duty. Such selflessness characterized his whole life. The last known Army rank of Lyle Robinson was Chief Chaplain, while he ministered as the chaplain at William Beaumont General Hospital in El Paso, TX.
