TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (September 19, 2017) – Rogers, Gunter, Vaughn Insurance has made a gift of $25,000 to Tallahassee Community College to support the renovation of a classroom in TCC’s Science and Mathematics building. The gift was presented at the September 18 meeting of TCC’s District Board of Trustees.
The company was represented by partners Sam Rogers, Bart Gunter, Jim Duncan and Kevin Vaughn. The latter is vice chair of the District Board of Trustees and also a member of the TCC Foundation’s board of directors.
“Education, training and community service are the cornerstones of our insurance industry,” said Vaughn. “We value the hard work, time and dedication TCC students put into their education, and we want to be sure these future leaders have the best and most updated environment for their learning experience.”
The Foundation has been working with groups and individuals throughout the community to support classroom renovations and has already identified donors for 34 of the 50 classrooms targeted for renovations.
The classroom that RGVI will sponsor is typically used for mathematics classes, which are an important part of the program of study for students majoring in risk management, insurance and related fields.
Gunter, who is president of RGVI and a TCC graduate, noted that the College has been the starting point for many successful careers in the insurance industry.
“We didn’t realize just how many of our employees attended TCC until we sent out an email about taking a group photo and all these people showed up,” said Gunter. “We share a common mission with TCC to serve the community, and it’s a privilege to support a classroom at TCC.”
