Bryan community will gather to honor the life of Alivia Mynes


Bryan College is mourning the loss of student-athlete Alivia Mynes who passed away along with her father, Chris, on Thanksgiving Day following a four-car accident near their home in Canton, Georgia.

Alivia (freshman) aspired to follow in her father’s footsteps by working in Human Resources, and she was pursuing a degree in Business Administration: Human Resource Management. She played as middle blocker for the Lady Lions Volleyball team and is described as an encouraging teammate and outstanding player. Chris and Alivia leave behind wife/mother, Jennifer, and daughter/sister, Sydney.

As Bryan students return to campus following this tragedy, individual grief counseling sessions as well as grief support groups will be available. Student Life staff will continue to be available for students as needed.

The Bryan community will gather in Rudd Auditorium on Tuesday, November 29, at 7:30 pm to grieve together and honor the life of Alivia and her father. The Mynes family and friends are invited to join us for this memorial service.
