Josh Mallard graduated from Benedictine in 1997. He attended the University of Georgia on a football scholarship and was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts in the 2002 NFL Draft. He played professional football for nine season and today is the owner of Savannah’s DataOne Merchant Services. Josh has established a scholarship at BC through his will and is now the youngest member of the 1902 Heritage Society at Benedictine.
“My parents sacrificed to send me to BC,” Mallard said. “I wouldn’t be where I am in life without Benedictine. Not only did BC prepare me for the University of Georgia and NFL, it prepared me for my time after college in the business word. To me, it wasn’t a difficult decision to add Benedictine to my will. Anyone who has had the experiences I’ve had should try to offer that to the next generation of Cadets. It is something I think everyone should do.
“I wanted to leave something behind so someone could have the experiences I had at Benedictine: the lifelong friendships, the top-rated education, and the connections in the business world,” Mallard continued. “The scholarship will be used for that young man that maybe just needs a little financial help. He doesn’t have the funds but he has the heart, the brains, and would represent Benedictine well. I would like to give him an opportunity that maybe he wouldn’t otherwise have.”
