A Columbus couple will be honored as "Benefactors of the Year" for Ivy Tech Community College. Rick and Alice Johnson will be honored at an awards ceremony being held Friday in French Lick.
Ivy Tech Executive Director of Marketing and Communications, Randy Proffitt, says in a press release that the Ivy Tech Foundation honors individuals, corporations, or foundations that have "changed the lives of Ivy Tech Community College students and the communities in which they live, learn and work." These life improvements can come from philanthropic endeavors and volunteer leadership, says Proffitt.
The Johnsons are being honored, in part, for their family's history of financial support to the school. Also, Proffitt cites the couple's donations to Ivy Tech's Major Gift Campaign. He also noted the pair's service on numerous boards in Columbus.
