Depth of Field

Depth of Field
Joyce Hiller '54 came to UNH with a strong interest in sports. As a physical education major (known today as kinesiology), she was an active participant in the University's small, but lively women's athletic program. Officially, she played field hockey in the fall, basketball in winter, and tennis in the spring, yet she remembers many other sports-related activities, including those notorious impromptu ski team practices on the president's lawn and at "Newman's Nose Dive" near the New England Center.

Today, as a retired physical education teacher with a stable financial picture, Hiller continues her engagement with her university. By establishing two funds that bear her name, Joyce enjoys "passing the ball and stick" to today's female student athletes with scholarship support for kinesiology majors and field hockey players. "It has been a pleasure to contribute to the University in this way," says Joyce. "These students deserve our support and I am glad to be in a position to help.

"Now that I'm in my 50th Reunion year, I am pleased to have found an additional way to help the University. After reviewing my financial goals, I chose to establish a charitable gift annuity, because I can save on my taxes and receive additional income. Best of all, I'm contributing to the Memorial Field project and helping to give our students a vastly improved facility on which to play."

Joyce's warm generosity has made her a part of the extended UNH family. As she says, "I don't have any children of my own, but all the kids at UNH? I call them mine."
