Sylvia G. Thompson Charitable Trust Pledges $705,000 to SFCC Foundation
According to a press release, trustees of the Sylvia G. Thompson Charitable Trust, in August, presented the fourth disbursement of a $705,000 pledge to the State Fair Community College Foundation in support of SFCC’s night/weekend nursing program.
The money helps fund two faculty positions and one-half of an administrative assistant position for the program until 2018. The trust previously funded the expansion of the two-year nursing program with a contribution of $670,000.
The trust owns the Sylvia G. Thompson Residence Center, located at 3333 West 10th St., and just recently opened its new facility, the E.W. Thompson Health & Rehab Center, at 10th Street and Mitchell Road, in Sedalia.
This facility will provide Medicare-certified rehabilitative care, along with 36 rooms dedicated to dementia care.
