She advises students, resolves conflicts and keeps students in school. That’s what you see Missy Bryant doing on campus. Off campus? She doesn’t stop running. After my brother Drew died from an aggressive form of cancer, Missy ran in the Philadelphia Half Marathon to raise money for a fund in his name, the Drew O’Donoghue Fund. And after that, she ran for him again. You see her energy every day in her commitment to those around her. But that only scratches the surface. She’s inspiring, and her support means so much to my family and the Bears community.
