Lisa Nicole Bryant ’93

Published in Jan. 26, 1994, issue

ON JULY 10, 1993, Lisa was murdered at Fort Bragg, N.C. She was on a temporary assignment as a second lieutenant in the army. Born at Andrews Air Force Base, Lisa grew up in England and California, and graduated from James W. Robinson Secondary School in Fairfax, Va. She was extremely active and accomplished, serving as Virginia Girls' State Governor, captain of the j.v. and varsity cheerleading squads, the managing editor of her school newspaper, and was a charter member and the president of the Junior Civitan (a community outreach organization).

At Princeton, Lisa attended college on an army R.O.T.C. scholarship and continued her involvement in many extracurricular activities. A sociology major and member of both Stevenson and Terrace clubs, she served as V.P. of her freshman class and as vp. of Delta Sigma Theta sorority. She had just begun her term as class alumni V.P. Many remember her cheering on the Tigers with the spirited squad she founded and led.

We will never forget Lisa's independence, dedication, fun spirit, and warm smile. She is survived by her parents, Wilbert and Emily, and brother Wilbert Jr. In her memory, the Lisa Bryant Fund for Children has been established. Donations can be sent to the Office of the Recording Secretary, P.O. Box 140, Princeton, NJ 08544. Our sympathies and prayers for her family have not ceased.

Lisa, 22 years ago on 12 May 1993, you sat in our home in Fort Dix, New Jersey, with your grandmother and held our two-week-old baby daughter in your arms with such warmth and love. We watched you look into her eyes and say, "I'm your new godmother, and I'll be watching over you as you grow up." We all laughed and said, are you sure about that. You just looked at us and smiled. Well my dear sister Lisa, I want to thank you for keeping your word, for we know in the spirit you are watching over our daughter. We found out on Thursday, 2 July 2015, your goddaughter, Jana J. Jones, has been accepted into Clark Atlanta University's graduate program for a master's degree in social work. Lisa, you have been and will always be our inspiration. God bless you, and continue to pray for us.
