The Sampson Community College Foundation recently installed new directors on the Foundation Board. The new directors are John Baxter, Anne Faircloth, Justin Lockamy and Roland Hall.
The primary purpose of the Foundation is to cultivate a broad base of community support for the college and seek external funds through the private sector to support the college mission. Gifts to the Foundation go to fund student scholarships and to support staff and student programs. The Foundation promotes the College through community outreach and public relations. The Foundation Board members represent the business and civic leadership of the county and serve as bridge to the community interests.
This year the Foundation awarded over $100,000 in scholarships, $14,000 in program support and over $7,000 in grants and staff support.
“We appreciate the leadership Lyman has brought to the Foundation Board for the past several years as President, and as VP and Annual Giving Chairman before that,” Foundation director Lisa Turlington shared. “Lyman and his family are longtime friends of the college, and he has worked tirelessly to help our students realize the dream of an education. It has been a pleasure working with him, and I hope he will continue to supply us with a steady stream of jokes.”
