Victor and Mary Skaggs were West Virginia natives for who education was vitally important. They were children of the Great Depression, their families very poor but hard working and devoted to the Lord. Victor earned his B.S. degrees at West Virginia Institute of Technology and served as a U.S. Navy officer during World War II. Frances earned a B.A from West Virginia University. After the war, Victor earned his M.A. at WVU in Speech and embarked on a long career in radio and television broadcasting. Frances was a homemaker who, after raising four children, worked in the travel industry. Their daughter Lynn Skaggs Davis graduated from ORU in 1977.
