Hugh Joyce
Class of 1958

Joyce, a 1958 Bethany graduate, played football for the Bison for four seasons, not missing a game in three years of play. During his career, the Green & White went from a season with two wins to three consecutive winning seasons. A guard and linebacker, he was a captain of the team and earned All-Conference honors. 

While at Bethany, he was affiliated with Sigma Nu fraternity and was a member of the male chorus. Joyce most recently was president of James River Air Conditioning in Richmond, Va, a company he founded in 1967. 

Joyce's legacy is continued every year as the Bethany Football Team hosts a Golf Scramble Tournament in his name. Along with that, Joyce is currently a member on the Bethany Board of Trustees.
