For alumni living along the corridor from D.C. to Atlanta, UNC Greensboro’s Minerva statue remains a beacon of generosity and service. Many of those alumni are the University’s staunchest supporters, Celia Gomedela Jolley ’71 and David Styles Jolley ’76 MA being among them.
The Jolleys attribute all they have achieved in life to the educational opportunities made available to them through the hard work, encouragement, and financial resources provided by their parents. Celia majored in elementary education at UNCG, and David earned his master’s degree in economics from the Bryan School. The couple enjoyed successful careers in teaching/administration and banking, respectively. Paying forward the good fortune that resulted from their education at UNCG, the Jolleys have made several testamentary gifts to their alma mater.
As an expression of gratitude, they established a scholarship in UNCG’s School of Education in 2007, and in 2014 made a second bequest to create a distinguished professorship in economics. In October 2018, they declared their intention to fund two additional estate gifts that will endow scholarships in the Bryan School and the School of Education, providing opportunities for deserving students of the future.
In addition to financial philanthropy, the Jolleys have been exemplars of UNCG’s motto: “Service.” Celia currently serves on the Excellence Foundation Board of Directors and has served on the Board of Visitors and the School of Education Advisory Board. In 2008, she received the School of Education’s Distinguished Service Award.
David was honored by Beta Gamma Sigma in 2012 and with the Bryan School’s Distinguished Alumni Award in 2014. He was instrumental in starting a student chapter of the National Association for Business Economics in the Bryan School and is the current chairman of the Economics Advisory Board.
The Jolleys are among the strongest links in UNCG’s Great Unbroken Band. Though they may live “300 miles from Minerva,” a phrase David coined for a D.C. area alumni event, home is where the heart is – right here on campus.
Service takes many forms, from tending to the sick to defending our nation. Dedication to others often leads to intersecting roads of service. For one UNC Greensboro alumna, those roads circled back to her alma mater.
Glenda Jensen Schillinger ’82 grew up knowing what service meant. A child from a military family, Glenda enlisted in the United States Air Force after graduating from UNCG with a bachelor’s degree in nursing. For 12 years, she served in the Philippines, Germany, and across the United States in medical- surgery, neonatal intensive care, labor and delivery nursing, hospice, and perinatal grief counseling. Her experiences with women’s and natal health led her to pursue a master’s in social work from Arizona State University after she was discharged.
Although she enjoyed working with at-risk youth, Glenda knew there was more she could do. In2007, she launched the GJJAMS Foundation, a private nonprofit organization focusing on issues that relate to women’s health, children, and education. The foundation provides financial support and grants to women’s and girls’ organizations such as The Women’s Funding Network and Strong Women, Strong Girls.
Through her foundation, she also honors and supports veterans at her alma mater. The Glenda Jensen Schillinger Program Fund in the School of Nursing Veterans Access Program provides critical support to nursing students who have served in our nation’s military. In addition to scholar- ships, her fund pays for necessary equipment and examination fees, as well as provides professional development and transition support.
Equally important to Glenda is preserving the military his- tory of UNCG students and alumnae. In 2018, she established the Glenda Jensen Schillinger ’82 Women Veterans Historical Project (WVHP) Endowment in University Libraries. The WVHP celebrates women’s many contributions to our nation’s armed forces since World War I through memorabilia preservation, oral histories, and scholarly programing. Her support allows for expanded engagement with researchers, scholars, and speakers of women’s military history.
The roads of service are long, but Glenda enjoys the journey. Through service, she honors the past and prepares for the future, ensuring the success of UNCG student veterans for generations to come.
Throughout life, family and friends help us realize our dreams. Louise Carden Hall ’64 and her husband, Paul, know this first- hand. When the unthinkable happened – the sudden death of their daughter, Vanessa – they knew she would want others in her generation to pursue their dreams. With the Vanessa Louise Hall Memorial Scholarship for Doctoral Studies, established in 2018, the Halls hope to make that possible for students attending the Graduate School at UNCG.
Vanessa’s 18 years were full of generosity, laughter, and love. From an early age, she strived to provide others with opportunities for a better life. She participated in yearly CROP walks to feed the hungry and fundraising dance recitals for Duke University Pediatrics ICU. Vanessa dreamed of a career in pediatrics or physical therapy, and had already been named a Morehead Scholarship nominee, accepted to UNC-Chapel Hill, and inter- viewed at Duke University in her senior year. In 1998, she died after an automobile accident, and yet Vanessa continues to make a difference: as an organ donor, she now lives on in others.
The scholarship Vanessa’s parents created in her name will benefit recipients who are strong both academically and ethical- ly, and intent on helping others. The Halls hope Vanessa’s memory and spirit of giving will help to further enrich lives of students across North Carolina and beyond, which in turn will enrich the lives of numerous others. They also hope these same students will be able to realize their dreams without the accompanying burden of extended debt.
“Scholarships can change your life,” says Louise Hall, who received a scholarship to attend UNCG in the 1960s. “Education has been possible for our family because people gave. Strangers gave, family gave. Vanessa planned to attend graduate school, and we would have gladly supported her. Now, through the scholarship, we will support other students as they strive to seek their own dreams.”
For 20 years, Louise has worn a butterfly pin to remember her daughter – a touching tribute not only to the origins of Vanessa’s name, but also to the transformative power of her life and spirit. The Halls have ensured Vanessa will continue transforming lives in the Spartan family, nurturing dreams that will ripple ever outward.
