The double play: Wayne Jarvis ’96

Alumni Pay It Forward Scholarship

Wayne Jarvis

In a kind of philanthropic double play, longtime donor Wayne Jarvis and his partner, Michael, recently made a bequest of $50,000 to Lynn. This is a planned gift in addition to the annual gift they’ve given in support of the same endowed scholarship. 

“We have included the Alumni Pay It Forward Endowed Scholarship in our trust to help future students fulfill their dreams and goals for a better future,” Jarvis said. 

An operations manager for the country’s largest funeral provider, Jarvis has been charitable with his time at Lynn, too. He participated in on-campus activities as a student, served on the alumni board for 12 years and was most recently invited to join the President’s Alumni Advisory Council, an exclusive group for Leadership Society members who are actively involved in the development and growth of Lynn.

“I am indebted to Lynn for the education I received, and because of that, Michael and I continue to contribute,” he said. “We find value in paying it forward.”

“I have always wanted to be a doctor, but I would not be at Lynn fulfilling that dream if I hadn’t received scholarships. I won’t take this opportunity for granted.”
