Timothy Bunce

    In 2011, Dianna Wilke '88, served as a member of the Board of Directors, and sought to establish an endowed scholarship to honor one of her valued teachers, Timothy Bunce.  With the interest and support of other alumni, the Timothy Bunce Endowed Scholarship was formed.

    The scholarship was intended to support a Villanova student for all four years of his or her education while boosting diversity on campus by aiding students who have financial need.  In the past the scholarship has been disbursed to children of alumni, and continues to consider legacy students who show potential, have an interest in pursuing a college degree and have demonstrated financial need.

    Timothy Bunce began his distinguished teaching career at Villanova Preparatory School in August of 1984, teaching senior English and freshman world history. He initiated the first AP 12th grade English Literature and Writing Composition class in 1987, then served from 2002-2007 as an Advanced Placement reader consultant to the College Boards' Education Testing Service.

    Tim is currently in his 36th year at Villanova, in the Alumni and Development Office, working as the Alumni Coordinator.  He still recalls his past students and their activities, both in and out of the classroom, with amazing clarity. Many alumni especially love returning to campus for a personal tour and enjoy lunch with one of their favorite teachers talking about the "good old days." 

    Thank you to our generous and thoughtful alumna who created this valuable scholarship and to the countless donors who have contributed to its growth.
