The UCF Foundation honored members of The President’s Trust, President’s Medallion, and The Charles Millican Society at a special reception on Tuesday evening at the FAIRWINDS Alumni Center.
Collectively, there are nearly 500 donors in these societies, representing more than $80 million in past and future support to UCF.
Featured speakers at the event included Dr. John Hitt, founding Board of Trustee member Phyllis Klock, and College of Sciences’ student Catherine Davies.
Dr. Hitt presented the President’s Award to Judy and David Albertson for their exceptional 30-year relationship with UCF.
Judy Albertson, a charter member of the UCF Board of Trustees and current member of the UCF Foundation Board, has been a leader in fundraising efforts for the Performing Arts Center and UCF’s fine arts press, Flying Horse Editions. Together, the Albertsons established The Judith and David Albertson Eminent Scholar Endowed Chair in the Department of Visual Arts. They are also avid supporters of the UCF Athletics programs. David Albertson is president of the UCF Athletics Board. The Albertsons played a key role in helping to build Bright House Networks Stadium.
The President’s Trust recognizes contributors with cumulative giving of $100,000-$999,999, President’s Medallion recognizes donors who contribute $25,000 or more in a fiscal year, and The Charles Millican Society honors individuals who make a planned or deferred gift commitment to the future of UCF and its students.
