RECOGNIZING A LIFETIME OF COMMITMENT TO THE COMMUNITY
IRSC AWARDS HONORARY DIPLOMA TO VERNON H. FLOYD

Vernon H. Floyd

Indian River State College President, Dr. Edwin R. Massey, recognized Vernon H. Floyd with an honorary diploma from IRSC at the Nov. 28 IRSC District Board of Trustees Meeting in honor of his life-long commitment to higher education and to the community.

After graduating from Lincoln High School in 1945, Vernon pursued his college education with Florida A and M University and Indiana University, graduating with his M.S. in 1959. After his service with the U.S. Army Infantry from 1946 to 1954, Vernon returned to Fort Pierce and was appointed as an Instructor with Lincoln Park Academy High School. In 1962, Vernon joined the faculty of Lincoln Junior College as an Instructor teaching physical education.

“Lincoln’s faculty and student body made every effort to develop a well-rounded program of athletic, cultural and social activities to complement the academic program,” shared Vernon. The varsity basketball team, under the direction of Coach Floyd, was a member of the Florida Junior College Athletic Association.

When Lincoln Jr. College and Indian River were combined, Vernon became a vital part of the faculty at Indian River and was promoted to Assistant Professor at Indian River Junior College in 1966. During his tenure with Indian River, Vernon served as the Department Chairman of Physical Education, the Assistant Basketball Coach and as the Director of Athletics prior to his retirement in August of 1985.

IRSC is proud to recognize and honor the contributions of Vernon H. Floyd to our institution, our community and to our students during his many years of dedicated service.
