In the summer of 2020, GE Aviation President and CEO David Joyce announced his retirement. While Joyce’s 12-year tenure as President and CEO is known for leadership and innovation, his contribution to military affiliated students at Xavier University will live on forever. To honor Joyce’s vision, an annual scholarship was created in his name. Learn more about the origin of the David Joyce Scholarship .
