Hightower Fellows,

It is with great sadness that we are reaching out to each of you to share this news.

Betsy Lovett passed away earlier this week. We want to celebrate Betsy’s life with Mike and Sue Hightower who have been close to Betsy for over 40 years.

Beyond all of the exceptional things she has done for the greater Jacksonville community, she was a very close friend to the Hightower Fellowship. She believed in our organization since its inception and never hesitated to celebrate each new class of Fellows and their individual accomplishments. She was a gracious host of the first few Classes year end event and spoke as a guest of honor with many of us.  We will miss Betsy's heart for her community and her ability to make sure everyone was having the time of their life while in her presence. If you would like to attend her funeral or viewing we have included those details below with her obituary.

In her honor we are starting the Betsy Lovett Memorial Scholarship to cover the annual tuition of one Non-Profit Hightower Fellow in each annual class.  We believe this is a tremendous way for us to celebrate Betsy’s life, as well as continue her legacy of investing in non-profits and giving generously.  In order for the annual dividends from the endowment to cover one Fellowship tuition we are seeking to raise $10,450.  Once we are completed with fundraising we will open the formal endowment account and entrust the annual selection of the scholarship recipient to the 3 Hightower Fellowship Founders. We are fundraising on the crowdfunding platform created by Hightower Fellow, Alvin Kennedy (Class of 2020).

The next time you throw an extravagant party, remember Betsy.

Sincerely,

Tyler Mathews & the Hightower Fellowship Board
