Moudy and Sharon Nabulsi Support SCC With $50,000 gift

08/17/2016

SCC's Building the Dream capital campaign has received another major gift, this time from SCC Trustee and Foundation Board member Moudy Nabulsi and his wife, Sharon. Nabulsi is the retired plant manager at the former Chevron plant in Fort Madison. Sharon owned and operated Scholl Real Estate for many years, earning and maintaining her licensure through SCC’s continuing education division. They reside in Fort Madison, where they serve on numerous other boards and organizations.

SCC and the Nabulsi family have a long history together. Moudy has served on the SCC Foundation Board since 1990 and the SCC Board of Trustees since 1993, currently serving as Board Chair.  

SCC President Dr. Michael Ash expressed his thanks for the couple’s support.

“Moudy and Sharon have been supporters of the College for years. Moudy has given many, many hours as an engaged Trustee and a member of our Foundation Board. Now they’re continuing that support with a generous gift of $30,000 to the Building the Dream project, and another gift of $20,000 to their scholarship fund,” notes Ash.

SCC Foundation Board Executive Director and campaign coordinator Becky Rump added, “I began management of the SCC Foundation in 1990. One of the first persons I asked to join the expanding Board was Moudy. Soon after, he was elected to the SCC Board of Trustees. Meanwhile, Sharon has supported the College’s activities with countless sponsorships and even established a scholarship. And, they both are active recruiters, encouraging people they encounter to pursue a higher education at SCC.”

Building the Dream Campaign Chair, Mike Shinn praises the Nabulsis for their ongoing and very active loyalty.

“Including Moudy and Sharon’s gift, we’ve secured funding commitments of over $9.3 million of our $12 million goal. We are grateful to this generous couple for helping us move closer to our target.”

The Building the Dream capital campaign supports SCC’s construction initiative of the same name. It includes the new Health Professions Center and the Hall of Sciences on the West Burlington campus, and the Industrial Technologies Training Center on the Keokuk campus. With an estimated total project cost of $27 million, it is the largest, most comprehensive infrastructure investment undertaken by SCC since 1995.
