What is the John J. and Kevin Foley Family Scholarship?

Kevin Foley, mascots and students

Suffolk County Community College has announced a fundraising effort to endow the John J. and Kevin Foley Family Scholarship, recently established to honor Kevin and his father, who have both been dedicated to supporting the College and its students. This endeavor will recognize the numerous contributions made by two gentlemen who have played major roles in the history of the College over the full course of their careers.

Kevin's father, John J. Foley, was a remarkable Suffolk County legislator who served his constituents for 18 years -- advocating for labor, education and health-related causes. He acted forcefully and believed strongly in the importance of education. John Foley dedicated his life to public service, including tenure as a member of the College's Board of Trustees.

Any contribution to this worthwhile cause will be helpful and appreciated. Thank you.
