This relationship grew out of an alumnus of the college, George Carpenter, who graduated in the mid 1950's and went on to become a Presbyterian minister. Through mission partnership work in his presbytery, George made frequent trips to Ghana, where he became friends with Rev. and Mrs. Twum-Barimah. When it was time for their oldest son, Frank, to go to college, George and his church made it possible for Frank to come to Maryville. As a Bonner scholar, Frank excelled in service, and when he was a student at Maryville, one summer he went home to do his service with Save the Children.
