First JU “Presidents’ Society” dinner recognizing donors held

The first Jacksonville University Presidents’ Society appreciation dinner Friday, Feb. 8, honored individuals, corporations and foundations for their generous contributions of $10,000 or more in unrestricted gifts to the University during the calendar year.

Three JU presidents – Chancellor Emeritus Fran Kinne, recently retired President Kerry Romesburg and new President Tim Cost – were on hand to thank guests and recognize them for their gifts.

The black tie dinner, held this year in downtown Jacksonville overlooking the St. Johns River, will be an annual appreciation event. This year it featured classical guitar entertainment by JU adjunct music professor Brent Bevis. Men on hand were given green-and-gold ties as gifts, and women received green-and-gold scarf wraps.
