TCC announces three gifts as part of fundraising campaign

​TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (April 20, 2016) — Tallahassee Community College announced three major gifts at its monthly District Board of Trustees meeting on Monday, April 18.

The first is a gift from Kim and Sammie Dixon establishing a scholarship that each year will provide full tuition to TCC for two members of the Boys and Girls Club of the Big Bend. Kim Dixon is a senior financial adviser with Merrill Lynch and Sammie Dixon is the CEO of Prime Meridian Bank.

The second gift is from Prime Meridian Bank and will benefit students and programs at TCC’s recently opened Wakulla Environmental Institute. In addition, the patio outside the WEI building will be re-named the WEI Prime Meridian Bank Patio.

Finally, the third gift is from Pam Butler and W. Tom Cumbie in honor of their parents Tom Cumbie Jr. and Nesta Cumbie. The gift will support programs at the new TCC Gadsden Center. Pam Butler is CEO of Aegis Business Technologies and also serves as president of the TCC Foundation’s Board of Directors. W. Tom Cumbie is a retired military judge in the U.S. Air Force.

The gifts are among many received since March, when the TCC Foundation announced its $10 million “TCC. We Rise” comprehensive campaign. The campaign has already secured $5.3 million in gifts to support innovation in the areas of teaching and learning environments, programs that answer the community’s workforce needs, and preparing a workforce that enriches the local economy.

According to Heather Mitchell, executive director of the TCC Foundation, the campaign is not just a vehicle to help more students attend TCC.

“It’s about giving our students the strongest possible foundation for being innovative human beings so they can conquer the current and emerging demands of today’s and tomorrow’s world,” said Mitchell.
