On Sept. 29, 2012 the Fullerton College Foundation and Fullerton College celebrated the fifty-third anniversary of the Foundation with the dedication of two new Donor Recognition Walls located in the foyer of the college’s Library and Learning Center along with a tribute to former college president Dr. H. Lynn Sheller. The Foundation was honored to have Paula Sheller Adams and her husband Parks in attendance at the event. Paula Sheller Adams is the daughter of Dr. H Lynn Sheller, President of Fullerton College from 1950 until his retirement in 1969. Dr. Sheller was also the founder of the Fullerton College Foundation in 1959.
For fifty-three years, the Fullerton College Foundation has been serving the needs of Fullerton College Students. During this time, approximately 11,500 Fullerton College students were awarded more than $3.5 million in scholarships, loans and emergency grants. This past May, 300 students received Foundation scholarships. The two recognition walls are dedicated to the donors who have made it possible for these students to succeed in their educational goals. Chuck Allen, Executive Director of the Foundation said that “without the generous support of our local community donors we wouldn’t be able to do the work that we do in helping students stay in school and achieve their educational goals.” Dr. Rajen Vurdien, President of Fullerton College said that “partnerships between the Fullerton College Foundation and its donors ensure that we continue to offer our students a first-rate and well-rounded educational experience.” Fullerton College is one of the oldest California Community Colleges and the top three of transfer institutions in the state. It is also one of the largest providers of workplace training in Orange County.
