California’s Allan Hancock College recently received the largest financial gift to the college in school history, and it came from the estate of former faculty member Patty Boyd. Boyd, who died last year at the age of 91, had been a popular local piano teacher and was a member of the pioneering Rice family, who were among the earliest settlers of Santa Maria Valley.

Boyd’s gift of $10-12 million is reportedly one of the largest in the history of any California Community College, and was made to ensure that doors will always be open to music and fine arts students at the college. A reception in Patty Boyd’s honor is planned for April 15 at 3pm on campus.
