The Jefferson College Foundation recently received a gift for $500,000 from the estate of businessman David Ault, believed to be the single largest check donation the Foundation has ever received since being formed in 1991.
In 2012, Ault, who was then president and owner of Fox Run Golf Club, Fox Run Builders, and Eureka Springs, Inc., committed to a $500,000 bequest while also gifting a new, fully furnished 4,400 square foot home on his golf course to the Foundation at a total combined value in excess of $1 million. Through the years, the luxury home and golf course have been used for cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship of donors and prospects.
A group of 52 Jefferson College employees was recently recognized during a ceremony for their years of service to the College, students, and the surrounding community. Each honoree received a token of appreciation signifying their number of years served.
The College community gathers each year to honor and recognize distinguished staff and faculty members for their outstanding achievements and years of service. As valuable members of the Jefferson College family, all faculty and staff play a pivotal role in recognizing their colleagues and coworkers for their outstanding achievements.
The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) recently awarded the Jefferson College Adult Education and Literacy (AEL) program the AEL High Quality Award for exceptional student outcomes and program operations. DESE annually recognizes local programs that achieve outstanding student outcomes while maintaining a high degree of fiscal integrity in their program operations.
The Jefferson College AEL program earned the award for meeting all set targets for the 2021-2022 academic year: persistence, post-testing, measurable skill gains, and employment after exit. The award was presented to AEL Program Director Julie Johns at the Missouri AEL Directors Conference in Jefferson City.
