DR. DAVID EARL POTTS
Dr. David Earl Potts passed away March 28, 2018 at the
age of 67. David will be deeply missed by his family,
friends, and the Judson College and Marion communities.
He is predeceased by his mother, Louise Green Potts, and
his father, Alton Earl Potts. He is survived by his wife of 44
years, Beth Bloodworth Potts; his daughters, Kristin Potts
Helton (John) and Shannon Louise Potts (Phil); eight
grandchildren, Gavin, Harper, John David, Laura Beth, Levi,
Patch, Ryder, and Teague; and his sister, Elizabeth "Libby"
Louise Potts (Dale Peterson).
Born on July 1, 1950, in Birmingham, Alabama, Potts spent
his childhood there, graduated from Ramsay High School,
and earned his B.A. degree from Samford University. He
received his M.S. in Education from Samford University and
PhD in Higher Education Administration from the University
of Alabama. He served as president of Judson College for
27 years and served as vice-president of development and
executive vice-president in years prior. Through his
dynamic leadership and commitment, Potts expanded the
endowment, campus development, community services
and ministries, as well as state and worldwide missions.
Beyond his devotion to Judson, Potts endeavored to
improve the health services and economic development in
Perry County and the Blackbelt region of the state. He was
a founding board member of Sowing Seeds of Hope and a
former president of Alabama Possible. Known for his
gentle spirit, generosity, and gracious love, his personal
commitment to Christ overflowed into his presidential
leadership and his relationships with family, students, and
so many others whose lives he touched. A memorial
service celebrating his life will be held on Sunday, April 8,
at 3:00 at Judson College in Marion, AL in the Alumnae
Auditorium. The family will receive guests from 2:15-2:45
before the service and immediately following the service. In
lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to Judson
College, Sowing Seeds of Hope, Siloam Baptist Church, or
