Coy knows the impact that Colby can have on young lives. Coming to Colby as a Bunche scholar, Coy studied mathematics, played varsity football, and participated in the Broadway Musical Review, truly taking advantage of the broad experiences that Colby offers. Coy has worked in education for years, first as a teacher, then a dean of student life in at the Packer Collegiate Institute, and now as director of diversity and equity at the Bank Street School for Children, an independent progressive school associated with Bank Street College, in New York City. 

When considering how he could give back to the institution where he got his start, he decided to make the College a beneficiary of his retirement account. “My past and future are tied to Colby. It’s the place where I first discovered my potential. I want to ensure that future students can do the same, which is why Colby is a beneficiary of my retirement account. It’s a simple and impactful way of paying it forward to the place that means so much to me,” Coy said.

Coy currently serves on the Board of Trustees and has supported many initiatives at Colby, including residential life and student services. Including Colby as a beneficiary of his retirement account is a simple and tax-conscious way for Coy, and many other donors, to make an impact at Colby.
