FORT PIERCE, FL— Indian River State College is hosting receptions at each of its branch campuses in honor of Dr. Edwin and Mrs. Jo Massey for their outstanding leadership and service. The community is invited to join faculty, staff, administration and students in recognizing the Masseys’ contributions to the College and to the region at large.

Massey, IRSC’s third president, has served the College with high distinction since 1973 (including 32 years as president). In April of 2019, he guided IRSC to its highest honor to date, the Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence. The award is the nation’s signature recognition of high achievement and performance among the more than 1,000 colleges like IRSC, positioning the institution as the “Top College in the Nation.”
