2020 Haystack Application for Steven Byrne Scholarship- For First Responders

This new scholarship fund was initiated in 2017 in honor of Steven W. Byrne, who unexpectedly passed away in 2016. Steve had recently retired from a long career of service with both the Boston Police Department and Boston Fire Department, and had come to Haystack almost every summer for twelve years, between 2004 and 2016. Steve attended workshops in woodworking and mixed media, as well as participating in a Summer Conference. He loved being at the school and developed deep and lasting connections with students, faculty, and staff. A group of Haystack friends made lead gifts to establish this fund in his honor and to provide an opportunity for other first responders to experience the sense of community that Steve found to be so meaningful at Haystack.
