What is the Foley Family Scholarship?
Suffolk County Community College has announced a combined fundraising effort to name the basketball court in the Brookhaven Gymnasium on the Ammerman Campus, in honor of Athletic Director and Head Women's Basketball Coach Kevin Foley. This is being done while working 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.
Naming the basketball court in the Ammerman Campus Brookhaven Gymnasium bears witness to Kevin's many years of academic and athletic service and commitment to our College and its students.
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.
