TCC administrator makes gift to support STEM Center

Lei Wang check.jpgTallahassee, Fla. (May 18, 2016) – A Tallahassee Community College administrator has provided a major gift to the college to support the TCC STEM Center. The gift is part of the TCC Foundation’s “TCC. We Rise.” campaign.


Lei Wang, TCC’s associate vice president for institutional effectiveness, donated an undisclosed amount to support renovation of TCC’s STEM Center, which focuses on science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Wang’s donation will be matched by the TCC President's Circle, of which she is a member.


Wang was born in a labor camp in China, where her parents were forced to live because of their anti-communist activities.


“As a first-generation immigrant, I can never repay what America has done for me,” Wang said. “I want to give something back to my adopted country in a humble way.  I cannot think of a better place to give than TCC.”

Lei.jpgWang said she chose to support the STEM Center in particular because STEM jobs are growing rapidly and offer important opportunities for the region and for TCC’s students.


“STEM is vital to the country, to the region and to our students. STEM jobs are growing at a rate of 17 percent. I want to contribute to the renovation of the STEM Center so our students can have a better learning environment.”

The center will be renamed the Lei Wang STEM Center.


"Dr. Wang has demonstrated a deep commitment to the development of our best and brightest students. This gift will do much for generations of students who will attend this college to gain jobs in a variety of STEM fields," said Jim Murdaugh, TCC president.


The gift was presented at TCC’s District Board of Trustees meeting on Monday, May 16.
