Milligan University's
Dr. A. Dain Samples 
Scholarship Fund


Dain, and his future wife Patricia McColpin, were both Milligan students in the early 1970s

Thank you for considering a gift to the fund that remembers our brother, son, father, and husband. Dr. Dain's impact on the computing industry is still significant after more than three decades, and his legacy on our lives—and the lives of his students—will continue long after his technical accomplishments fade from the memories of those still using the tools and knowledge for which he was responsible.
