The Value of Education

Aspiring nurse Raven Alexa Gilberts 13OX of New York City says that without receiving the Nancy and Charles Rice Endowed Scholarship to attend Oxford, college would have been impossible for her. GE executive John Rice and his wife, Cammie, have made a significant gift to support the Emory Advantage financial aid program at Oxford College. The Nancy and Charles Rice Endowed Scholarship recognizes John’s parents’ commitment to education and is in honor of his father, who passed away in 2009. ”I believe in the Oxford model. I’ve seen it do great things for my niece, who is now a junior on the main campus,” says Rice, an Emory trustee. “The way young people can develop on the Oxford campus is special.”
