Mr. Jernigan was renowned for his civic and philanthropic accomplishments. He established endowments at Birmingham Southern College, Samford University, The University of Alabama, and The University of Alabama at Birmingham, which provided scholarships for college and nursing students who would otherwise have been unable to attend school.
