SunTrust Bank fulfilled their commitment to the Fogelman College of Business and Economics last week. In 2006, they committed to donating $1 million to the University of Memphis in an effort to further its progressive and positive effects upon the Memphis community. Of this total amount, Fogelman College received $750,000. The remaining $250,000 was given to the Rudi Scheidt School of Music.

Fogelman College uses these funds for student scholarships and to sponsor the FCBE Open House and community events. SunTrust also has played an integral role in the MILE program, which stands for Memphis Institute of Leadership Education. Top SunTrust executives have partnered with our highly motivated business students to share professional insights and enhance students’ management skills through real-life experience.

“The Fogelman College is very fortunate to have a partner as committed to improving our college and university as SunTrust Bank. They understand the value of education and their continued generosity significantly impacts the lives of our young business students, both personally and professionally,” said Adam Walker, Senior Director of Development for Fogelman College. “We are extremely appreciative of their support.”
