Marjorie Hughes Harris Endowment


Recently, Friend Bank announced a $50,000 gift to the Slocomb Alumni Association in memory of Marjorie Hughes Harris, SHS Class of 1954. Marjorie loved her alma mater, and was a faithful member of the Alumni Association. She was a key leader of the Association in the early stages of the annual Association Fundraiser, which since 1994 has contributed over $400,000 to Slocomb schools to fund teacher and staff requested projects. The newly created Marjorie Hughes Harris Endowment will be used exclusively to support the Association Fundraiser held in the fall each year. Annually, an amount equal to five percent of the value of the Endowment will be transferred to the Fundraiser, to be used to support ongoing projects that benefit teachers and students. Pictured here signing the Endowment document: Hope H.. Johnson (Marjorie’s daughter and Friend Bank CEO), Maxine Smith (Alumni Association President), and Diane Smith (Alumni Association Secretary-Treasurer).
