GCSC Foundation Awarded Grant to Hire
Counselor for Gulf/Franklin Campus


PANAMA CITY, FL – The Jessie Ball duPont Fund recently awarded the Gulf Coast State College Foundation a $46,120 grant from the Port St. Joe Capacity Building Fund to finance a counselor position at the Gulf/Franklin Campus.

“At the Jessie Ball duPont Fund, we are very interested in helping young people access higher education and be successful,” said Sherry Magill, president of the Fund. “Having counselors in place who can serve as guides for students greatly increases the likelihood that students will stay in school and complete their education.”

The new counselor at the Gulf/Franklin Campus will provide academic, personal and financial counseling to students to improve success and retention. The counselor will also conduct workshops and group sessions designed to provide students with the skills needed to be successful in college and in their careers. The grant also includes funding for field trips and conferences in order to provide Gulf/Franklin students with a broader array of experiences.

“We are very excited about the addition of a counselor to our team at the Gulf/Franklin Campus,” said Loretta Costin, Director of the Gulf/Franklin Campus. “With this addition, we will be able to provide increased support to our students and we are thankful for their continued support.”

“The Gulf Coast State College Foundation and the Jessie Ball duPont Fund continue to partner in their vision to provide Gulf and Franklin County students academic support and opportunities to achieve success,” said Margie Mazur, Executive Director, GCSC Foundation. “The Foundation’s core mission is to provide educational opportunities for students and this project is one that will ensure student success.”
