One area organization is honoring one of its late employees through a scholarship fund.
JZ Analytics, a polling and research firm is keeping John Bruce's legacy alive by donating to the SUNYIT foundation in his name. Bruce is a SUNYIT graduate
John Zogby, the senior analyst at JZ Analytics says this is a fitting way of giving back to the school.
The money will provide a scholarship to future computer science students.
"Students always need money for scholarships and they also need encouragement. And I think to get encouragement from real names in the case of John Bruce a student should get that encouragement who took his education and hit a home run with it," said Zogby.
Another donation has also been made in honor of John Zogby's wife's parents.
That scholarship is geared towards nursing students.
