Jay Scott Harris '98: Paying It Forward
We sometimes do things without knowing the impact for years. Take, for example, Clifford "Bump" Bean. As a student he sang in the Glee Club, played in a dance band, and participated in varsity shows at the Waterville Opera House and sometimes even in Boston. He also founded, with seven other students, an a cappella singing group called the Colby Eight.

Because of their many ties to Colby, James (Jay) '86 and Laurie Haley Allen '87 feel strongly about contributing to the Colby Fund. Jay and Laurie were married in Colby's Lorimer Chapel in 1989 with many Colby friends in attendance . . .

Jay Scott Harris's first visit to Colby was in 1992 when, as a high school sophomore from Kansas City, Kan., he attended the Colby Xerox Summer Institute. The program brought 30 to 40 inner city students to the College for two weeks for courses with Colby professors and for hiking and camping trips, giving them a taste of Colby and Maine.
In 1998 Colleen Khoury '64 became the first woman dean of the University of Maine School of Law, making her one of only 25 women deans at law schools nationally at the time. She credits her family and upbringing with setting her character, but she says Colby is responsible for the way her life has unfolded.

Janice Griffith will never forget the day she opened a letter from Colby offering her a full scholarship. "Little did I know then the journey for which Colby would lay the foundation and provide direction," she said. Because generous donors to Colby made it possible for her dream of a college education to come true, she is showing her appreciation by endowing a scholarship that will help to realize the dreams of future Colby students.

For Jeanine Starrett '50, the opportunity to pay it forward to other students from Maine came with a piece of land and a sudden idea from her husband, Peter.

she attended the Colby Alumni College, on The Great Depression this year. In August she was at the 54th annual Wachs Great Books Nike Metcon Bronze Summer Institute, also on campus. "There's so much happening on campus during the summer that most alumni probably don't even know about! The Great Books program offers an excellent opportunity to engage in intellectual discussions, and I already have the reading list for next summer," she said.
Bob Burke comes from a Colby family and has stayed involved with his alma mater throughout the decades in a multitude of ways. In June he will return to campus to celebrate his 50th reunion, and he plans to contribute to his class's 50th reunion gift via an IRA. "I believe that the IRA rollover gift option is an excellent way to make a gift to Colby and not have to pay taxes on the amount you withdraw from your IRA," said Bob.
