RESOLUTION IN HONOR OF THE SERVICE OF ROBERT S. MCCOY, JR. FOR MERITORIOUS SERVICE TO THE WINTHROP UNIVERSITY FOUNDATION BOARD

WHEREAS, the Winthrop University Foundation Board and the Winthrop University Board of Trustees do hereby commend and honor the distinguished service of Robert S. McCoy, Jr. as long-serving member and President of the Winthrop University Foundation Board; and

WHEREAS, since joining the Foundation Board in 1989 and assuming the presidency in 1994, Robert S. McCoy, Jr. freely gave of his time and talents to strengthen the essential operations of the Foundation, working assiduously to create a significant endowment by leading efforts to increase assets of less than $1,000,000 in 1989 to more than $25,000,000 currently, thereby leaving the Foundation and Winthrop University in a strong position that many could not foresee fifteen years ago; and

WHEREAS he employed his trademark characteristics of planning, patience, persistence and above all a positive spirit to promote educational advancement at Winthrop University, always seeing possibility where others saw obstacles and encouraging the Foundation Board and Board of Trustees by his unshakeable belief in a solution to every challenge; and

WHEREAS, by contributing a major gift to establish the Robert S. McCoy, Jr. Endowed Scholarship at Winthrop University, he sent a clear message and set a powerful example that essentially launched our successful capital campaign;

THEREFORE LET IT BE RESOLVED that the Winthrop University Foundation Board, the Winthrop University Board of Trustees, and President DiGiorgio, on behalf of the members of both boards, the students, faculty and staff at Winthrop University, and the extended public higher education community, do gratefully praise the tireless dedication, vigorous advocacy and steadfast determination that Robert S. McCoy, Jr. has consistently demonstrated on Winthrop’s behalf, and in commending him for outstanding meritorious service, do wish him every success and happiness in all his future endeavors.
