Joan shared that from the first time she taught at Ozarka College in 1996, she was captivated by all the opportunities that it offered to so many. She added that this donation is just a small token of what her and her husband wish to give to help Ozarka College move into the future.
Their contribution will pay to furnish an office in the Student Success Center in the Student Services Center on the Melbourne Campus. Guy is a retired pharmacist and Joan is the vice president of institutional research and planning at Ozarka College.
Ozarka College broke ground on Monday, December 2, on the two-story 18,560 square-foot building that will house all student services, various individual and group study areas, community meeting rooms, a video conferencing center, additional banquet space for college and community use, and a state of the art culinary learning lab.
The “Students at the Center” capital campaign is a bold step to raise the quality of educational and student support services at Ozarka College to new heights. The campaign will help ensure student success and will enhance the campus to create a more community-centered learning environment.
Donation levels range from $2,500 to furnish an office space up to $250,000 for building naming rights. The Ozarka College Foundation, a non-profit organization, as well as the Ozarka College Board of Trustees, will ensure the funds are used for expressed purposes.
