The Foundation for Seminole State College marked the end of its three-year comprehensive campaign with its annual Celebration of Giving on August 30, 2016. Highlights of the evening included the dedication of Harriett’s Theatre and the presentation of the first Norm Lewis Musical Theatre Scholarship.
The comprehensive campaign was the Foundation’s first and exceeded its goal by more than $1.5 million for a total raised of $13.553 million. Celebration of Giving provided an opportunity to recognize the campaign’s many donors and longtime supporters of Seminole State College.
“Through this campaign, we have doubled Foundation assets and experienced all-time highs in event proceeds, employee giving, and scholarship funds awarded to students,” said John Gyllin, Executive Director of the Foundation for Seminole State College. “The support from our donors and friends has been impressive during this campaign.”
“The generosity of our donors during the campaign provides an incredible foundation of support for the next 50 years of Seminole State College,” said Seminole State College President E. Ann McGee. “We thank each donor for investing in the future of the College and our students and helping create a lasting legacy.”
Highlights of the event included:
Caleb Hylton, President of Seminole State’s Sanford/Lake Mary Student Government Association, praised the evening’s honorees and campaign donors. Caleb received scholarships while earning his Associate of Arts degree and is returning to earn his bachelor degree in Information Systems Technology. “I am here tonight as just one person, but I am representing thousands of students whose lives have been changed because of each of you.”
