Pfeiffer Scholarship

Highly successful Midwestern business entrepreneur Henry Pfeiffer, Jr. was the founder of the Pfeiffer Chemical Company.

He and his wife, Annie Merner Pfeiffer, had no children and instead directed their time and resources to philanthropic enterprises, especially at Methodist-related colleges. The Pfeiffers were the first major donors to the construction of our Frank Lloyd Wright’s campus in 1938. In 1941, Florida Southern awarded Mrs. Pfeiffer an honorary doctorate and dedicated the newly completed campus Chapel in honor of her philanthropy. The Annie Merner Pfeiffer Chapel became the cornerstone of the Frank Lloyd Wright designed campus at Florida Southern College.

 

Lucius P. Ordway Scholarship

From $7,000 to $11,000 per year

Ordway purchased a struggling company named the Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing Company and, through keen business acumen and exemplary leadership, stewarded the company to profitability and a trajectory that would skyrocket 3M into the international corporation that it is today, providing innovative new products for our world.

E. T. Roux Scholarship

Edwin T. Roux distinguished himself throughout Florida as an exemplary entrepreneur and business leader. Mr. Roux’s enterprises included banks, railroads, multiple lumber companies, and real estate ventures statewide. He was elected to the Florida Southern College Board of Trustees in 1918 and served until 1946. Following the devastating fire of 1921 that destroyed the College at its location in Sutherland, Florida, Mr. Roux provided temporary space for student housing and classrooms at his Clearwater Beach Hotel.

William H. Danforth Scholarship

From $8,000 to $13,000 per year

William H. Danforth is known worldwide as the pioneer of a new industry and founder of the Ralston Purina Company. He was an exemplar of corporate leadership who generously shared his talents as a director on the boards of numerous national corporations. Despite enormous business success, it was his work with and for American youth that was the source of his greatest satisfaction. Author of the book I Dare You!, Mr. Ralston postulated that four key components in life need to be in balance. He illustrated theses components, physical, mental, social, and religious, in a four-square checker board pattern. To be healthy, it was necessary for the four squares to stay in balance, with one area not to develop at the expense of another. This concept became intertwined with the company in 1921 with the introduction of the sale of feed pressed into cubes called “checkers” and is seen today in the familiar Ralston Purina checker board logo. Through his Danforth Foundation, 24 Danforth Chapels were constructed on college campuses around the United States, including Florida Southern College, and in Japan.

Thad M. Buckner Scholarship

From $6,500 to $10,000 per year

Mr. Buckner and his wife, Loca Lee Buckner, College Trustee, were lifelong supporters of Florida Southern College. Upon Mrs. Buckner’s death in 1966, her bequest to Florida Southern was at that time the largest gift ever made to higher education in the state of Florida. In tribute to the Buckner’s lifelong commitment and generosity to Florida Southern College, the former Roux Library was renamed the Thad M. Buckner Building and the College Theatre was named the Loca Lee Buckner Theatre.

Emile E. Watson Scholarship

From $7,500 to $12,000 per year

Emile Watson was awarded a citation for distinguished service in advancing education in the United States by Florida Southern College President Dr. Ludd M. Spivey at the dedication of the new Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Administration Building and additionally honored by the naming of its west building the Emile E. Watson Administration Building.

Edna Mae Pearce Lockett Scholarship

From $5,500 to $9,000 per year

The descendent of the first settlers along the Kissimmee River Ridge in the early 1800s, Edna Mae Pearce Lockett was a pioneer in her own right.

A 1998 inductee into the Florida Agriculture Hall of Fame, she managed the large family cattle ranch started by her grandfather and was an active member of the Highlands County and Florida Cattlemen’s Association. Besides her presidency of the Florida Southern College Alumni Association, Mrs. Lockett served her alma mater as a member of the College’s Board of Trustees. In 1980, she was selected as the College’s 46th Honorary Chancellor.
