WHO GAVE IT: Educator Elizabeth (Fox) Hayden ’76 
Stonehill trustee and parent of Elizabeth Hayden ’04

HOW MUCH: $100,000

HOW GIFT WILL BE USED: To fund the James E. Hayden ’76 Memorial Scholarship in honor of her husband, Jim. Established in 2006, the scholarship will be first awarded next year.

WHY I GiVE: “When my husband and I attended Stonehill, the College motto was The Making of a Person. The profound impact Stonehill had upon us as undergraduates continued to nurture us, as we grew as a couple and into a family, in our personal and in our professional lives. Stonehill defined who we were as parents, neighbors, colleagues, and partners. When Jim was killed on 9/11, my family was devastated. Many people helped us through impossible times, especially our friends at the College. In establishing a scholarship in Jim’s name, we hope to carry on the tradition with the next generation of making a better person.”
