John Joyce '53
John Joyce won a small, partial scholarship, but he still had to work his way through college. "When I left Bryant, I was ahead of graduates from other schools — the instruction I received was first rate," exclaims Joyce. After graduation, he worked as an accountant and opened his own funeral home businesses in New York and New Jersey. He recently established a charitable gift annuity with Bryant, the residue of which will endow a scholarship to benefit accounting or finance students with significant financial need. "It means a great deal to those who need extra help — I know what a little help meant to me," says Joyce.
