The health and safety of our community is of utmost importance to Pensacola State College and due to the challenges associated with in-person events, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our December Holiday Experience until next year. We know this is a very challenging time, and appreciate your understanding and support. We look to celebrating our Holiday Experience with all of you in 2021.
A magical event did take place in 2020 as we hosted our first Change Maker celebration dinner on December 9th in our newly constructed Baars Technology Building. Attendees included founding donors, Michael and Jo-Ann Price who generously donated $100,000 to inspire other donors with a Change Maker challenge.
Their challenge allowed PSC to cancel our annual holiday event this year without sacrificing the ability to help students through fundraising for scholarships and state matches. At the celebration, five donors were thanked for their commitment that was matched by the Prices and resulted in five new endowed scholarships at $104,500. Additionally, eleven donors were thanked for their contributions that when matched by the Prices made $30,500 immediately available through Universal scholarships.
The final $40,000 of the Price’s generous gift was used to match the State’s first-generation challenge and Florida Blue’s nursing scholarship.
Thank you to our 2020 Change Makers!
