Foundation Honors Dr. Stephens with Endowment
The SFSC Foundation has established the Norman L. Stephens Jr. Endowment to honor Dr. Stephens as he retires as college president. Faculty, staff, and students are invited to make donations to the endowment.
The endowment honors Dr. Stephens’ accomplishments during his 11 years of service to SFSC. These include:
- The opening of DeSoto and Hardee campuses.
- The construction of the SFSC Theatre for the Performing Arts, the Dr. Norman L. Stephens Jr. Health and Science Education Center, and the Dental Education facility.
- National recognition for the college, when it became a finalist for the Aspen Prize twice.
- The college’s transition to a four-year baccalaureate degree-granting institution.
SFSC is among the leading community colleges in the country because of the hard work, dedication, and vision of Dr. Stephens. The foundation is counting on your generosity as it honors his legacy. A PDF pledge card is available for your convenience. Make checks payable to SFSC Foundation with “Stephens Endowment” written on the memo line, or call 453-3133 to make a donation via credit card.
