Impact As Student Has Lasting Effect on Alumna

Joyce is a Founder’s Circle member who has supported the JBU Scholarship Fund for several years. “I do what I can every year to give to JBU students because I believe a Christian JBUSFeducation is important and I want to help with their expenses,” said Joyce.

Although Joyce admitted she was homesick her first semester at JBU, she says it didn’t take long for her to get acquainted with all the different programs the university had to offer.

Aside from her studies, Joyce was in the aviation club, took swimming lessons and regularly attended street meetings in Siloam Springs. She also worked at the switchboard and helped cook campus breakfast.

Why did she become a Founder's Circle member as a way of supporting JBU? “I needed help too when I was a student and someone helped me," she said.
