Two at SPSU honored for philanthropy

Dr. Alan Gabrielli

The Office of Advancement and the SPSU Foundation once again honored noteworthy donors at this year’s 30th annual National Philanthropy Day luncheon.

This program is an Association of Fundraising Professionals event held at the Georgia Aquarium and presented by Kiwanis International to celebrate philanthropy in the Atlanta area. Development officers Cheryl Martinez and Andy Schmidt served on the steering committee for the event.

Honored during the luncheon for their years of service and support for SPSU were Dr. and Mrs. Alan Gabrielli and Dr. and Mrs. Ron Koger.

Dr. Gabrielli, dean of the School of Arts and Sciences from 2002-11, has given generously to the SPSU Foundation for more than 20 years and continues to work as co-director of SPSUTeach.

Dr. Koger, vice president for Student and Enrollment Services, has donated to the Faculty-Staff Campaign since 1997 and served in numerous roles on campus, including heading up SPSU’s participation in the State Charitable Contributions Campaign for more years than anyone can remember.
