Erin and Ben Napier’s Alma Mater Honors Couple With Special Gift

By Movieguide® Contributor

HOME TOWN’s Erin and Ben Napier were recently honored by their alma mater with the news that one of Jones College’s schools will be named after them. 

“It’s kind of unbelievable that they would consider naming a school after us,” Erin said of The Erin and Ben Napier School of Design and Building Arts. 

Ben said it was an “honor” not just for them but for their parents and grandparents, all of whom attended Jones College. Erin added that she hopes their daughters, Helen and Mae, will also attend the college.

According to Jones College’s website, the school will “address the workforce gap of skilled building designers, carpenters, and craftspeople that are needed to restore and preserve small towns across Mississippi.”

The school will offer courses like Computerized Design, Graphic Design, Interior Design, Painting, Foundations, Plumbing, Framing, Roofing, Electrical, Masonry, HVAC, Carpentry, Metalworking, Plastering and Stonework.

The news of the new school was a surprise to the couple, who were told while they were visiting Jones College for an episode of HOME TOWN. 

“Tonight’s episode has a pretty big announcement in it. I hope you watch. If you’re near @jones_college, there will be a big watch party in the M.P. Bush Fine Arts Building on campus! To my brothers before they ask, yes, I cried,” Ben posted on Instagram.

“This is where we met,” Erin shared. “We had our first date in the student union. Everyone on both sides of our family went to school here.”

Movieguide® previously reported on the couple’s connection to their alma mater:

Erin Napier recently shared a sweet selfie of her and her husband, Ben, and reminisced about their time together in college. 

“Had lunch at our alma mater today, and took a picture in the spot where we met in the yearbook office,” Erin captioned the selfie. “We were 19 and 21 and had no idea this is what our future would be like. Still my biggest crush.”

She also included a throwback shot of the pair, hard at work on the college yearbook.
