Browns Continue Their Legacy of Support for Flagler
Jul 12, 2022
Brad and Mandy Crupi Brown's support for their alma mater extends beyond their donation for the new innovation center that will bear their name. From serving on boards to funding scholarships and facilities, they have been working to make a difference on the Flagler campus since graduating from the College in 1988.
“We’ve both always had such a love for Flagler and the experience we had there,” Mandy Brown said.
She served on the College’s Alumni Board of Directors from 2009-15, and Brad joined the Flagler Board of Trustees in 2019, where he continues to help guide the school. Their roots to Flagler now also extend to a new generation, as their oldest daughter, Emily, graduated from Flagler in 2019 with a degree in Psychology.
In addition to the Brown Innovation Center, they have made donations to support the development of Flagler’s Alumni House, as well as new scholarships for students who are minorities, first-generation, and from low-income families. Brad said they see their involvement as a small way of giving back and helping to move the College forward in a positive way.
“We both understand the importance of a College experience, and helping other students who need the opportunity,” Mandy said about why they set up the scholarship. “Flagler is our special place and what we focus on the most.”
Brad said they both recognize how others helped them as they went through school, and that they have seen first-hand the financial needs of today’s students. By giving back to Flagler, they hope to not only help make a difference, but to also motivate others to give back.Tagged As
