SFSC Foundation Receives Land Donation

Submitted by on December 17, 2012 – 9:41 amNo Comment

The South Florida State College Foundation recently received a 1.2 acre plot of residential land on Lake June in Lake Placid. Joe L. Davis Sr. of Joe L. Davis Real Estate Investments donated the plot. The SFSC Foundation will sell the property and use the funds to provide scholarships for students.

 “I had the property, and I just wanted to make a good donation,” Davis said. “I didn’t have the opportunity to go to college after I finished high school, so providing the opportunity for others has always been important to me. I chose to focus my efforts on SFSC because I knew I could do more good and help more people in our three counties than in other cities.”

“Mr. Davis is the college’s single largest individual supporter,” said Don Appelquist, director, SFSC Foundation, Inc. “This is just one of many generous gifts he has given the college over the past 28 years, and many students’ lives have been changed because of him. We are grateful for his support.”
