Dr. Michael and Michele Ginieczki
Dr. Michael Ginieczki and his wife Michele founded the Rose Taylor Boyce Memorial Scholarship to award students with major preferences in Business Studies and/or Political Science and a concentration in Pre-Law. The late Rose Boyce earned recognition among her peers in the 1950s, after her husband’s unexpected death in 1954 left her a single parent at the age of 39, by breaking barriers for women who sought a career in business. Rose was one of the few women during that time period to earn success as a commercial broker in the male-dominated insurance industry in Philadelphia, and eventually owned her own insurance agency. Rose also was appointed as the executive secretary for the Philadelphia Plumbing and Heating Association in 1970 and served in that capacity until 1990. She was born in Philadelphia in 1915, the youngest of eight children. She retired from her business career in 1999 and made her home in Longport, NJ. Rose died on January 24, 2006 at the age of 90.
