Connecting Campaign Launched for Rivier College

He was a visionary who affected the lives of almost every American whether they know it or not. If you look at the industries and people he has affected you can't help but recognize how he has left his imprint on the world for a long time to come. He had an unshakable quest for perfection, style, design and maybe most importantly, functionality. A few years ago I read John Sculley's autobiography Odyssey, and I could not help but be fascinated by Steve Jobs and his decisions in life.
