It is with great pleasure that I announce the Harvey and Carol Massey Foundation has made a $2 million commitment to the new Crummer School building that will be part of The Innovation Triangle.
This leadership commitment to the new Crummer building and its integration with a world-class boutique hotel and a dynamic teaching museum in The Innovation Triangle will be a unique differentiator that enhances recruiting for Crummer’s portfolio of executive, professional, and early-career degree programs; drives increased participation in Crummer’s executive education programs; and builds direct connections between business and art.
“We are proud to support Rollins College and the Crummer Graduate School of Business on this initiative,” said Harvey L. Massey, Chairman and CEO of Massey Services. “Supporting education in our communities is extremely important to us. Crummer has been recognized as one of the top MBA programs in our country, and many of our Team Members have graduated from the graduate school and continue to be involved in the program.”
The Massey family are longtime friends of Rollins and the Crummer Graduate School of Business. Harvey and Carol have supported several initiatives at the College, including the Crummer School Center for Advanced Entrepreneurship, where Harvey served as Board Chairman, and renovations to R. D. Keene Hall, home of our music programs. Andrea Massey-Farrell ’98, President and CEO of the Harvey and Carol Massey Foundation, has been a member of the Hamilton Holt School Board of Advisors since 1996 and a leading member of the Donor’s Forum of Crummer’s Edyth Bush Institute for Philanthropy & Nonprofit Leadership. Tony Massey, President of Massey Services, received his Executive MBA from Crummer and is a member of the School’s Board of Overseers. His leadership on the Executive Committee of the Orlando Economic Partnership provides valuable counsel to me and Crummer Dean Deborah Crown on the College’s relationships with the Central Florida business community. We are delighted that the Masseys share our vision with their commitment to this project.
