Faculty and staff at Southern College of Optometry (SCO) recently concluded their Annual Campaign with record numbers of support.
Ninety-four percent of the college's employees participated in the campaign, securing a record high $103,654 in support of college programs.
A number of faculty members additionally pledged $3,250 to support the Al Fors, OD Memorial Tribute Room, raising total gift amounts to $106,904 in memory of long-time faculty member Dr. Al Fors several months after his passing in early 2014.
"Our faculty and staff showed tremendous support, generosity and teamwork," said Cecily Freeman, Annual Giving Coordinator at SCO. "SCO continues to lead by example because of our faculty and staff. Their gifts will make a difference in lives of our students and patients."
SCO is midway through its five-year "Envision Our Progress" campaign launched in the fall of 2011 in support of student scholarships, patient care opportunities and academic facilities that include construction of the college's new state-of-the-art classrooms completed in the summer of 2013.
Alumni and friends of the college may support any number of SCO's programs by using the gift form on SCO's website or by contacting the Office of Institutional Advancement at (901) 722-3216.
