Many students graduate with hopes to one day give back to the institution that gave them so much. For Eastern Michigan University alumnus John Tuttle (BBA04), that hope is now a reality.

Tuttle, the Head of Corporate Affairs, New York Stock Exchange, along with his wife, Abigail, has started the Abigail and John Tuttle Endowed Scholarship as a way to give back to the University, the College of Business and the many talented students who walk through campus every day.

“From a personal perspective, I met some of my very best friends while living in Ypsilanti,” Tuttle said. “From a broader perspective, EMU plays an important role in educating the next generation of leaders in business, education and government. The more opportunity we can provide to these future leaders, the better it will be for EMU, Michigan and the country.”

Another reason for the scholarship is because Tuttle understands the importance of remaining a quality contact for students as they step out into the world on their own.

“Upon graduation, students leave Ypsilanti with knowledge, ambition and a diploma,” said Tuttle. “But they lack an organized network of EMU business alumni that could assist them as they move forward in their careers and in their lives. A strong alumni network is one way in which I could become more involved and provide additional opportunities for EMU students.”

To qualify for the scholarship, students must be either a junior or senior enrolled in the COB, a full-time student and exhibit commitment to community involvement and/or public service.

Tuttle’s hopes for the scholarship are to continue to see the monetary value grow and to have the opportunity to get to know the recipients of the scholarship. He and Abigail reside in New York City and Michigan.
