R. Joe McCoy, BS
Northern Arizona University

Joe and Earlynn are adept when it comes to seeing the big picture. They pride themselves in their past—they met in third grade at St. Anthony’s in Flagstaff and attended Northern Arizona University together—and they confidently look to the future. As proud members of the Heritage Society, they are establishing their legacy. Joe recalls his professors in the “field of commerce.” “They kept track of their students and took pride in our success.” Joe and Earlynn keep that pride going with their planned gift funding scholarships in their name for business and physcial education students. Emily Kuckuk, an enthusiastic and successful NAU student is a recent recipient of a scholarship created by a planned gift. “This scholarship gives me endless amounts of invaluable time; I can explore my passions and maintain my GPA.” Because of the McCoys desire to carry their historic pride into the future, students like Emily will benefit from scholarships for years to come.
