 One Man’s Bonus to
 His Community
 Joseph Watson is a neighborhood leader
 and local truck driver who created the
 Charleston Development Academy En-
 dowment at CCF this year with his bonus.
 “I knew it was coming and I knew what I
 wanted to do with it,” he said simply.

 He is a man of conviction about the com-
 munity and the Charleston Development
 Academy (CDA), a three-year-old charter
 school for 125 neighborhood children
 (K-6). Joseph believes that success lies in
 smaller classes and individual attention
 and he intends to ask the whole commu-
 nity for support. For him, it’s personal.

 “I see so many people I grew up with who
 are struggling,” Joseph says. “What made
 the difference for me were the people
 who cared about me along the way. When

Scholarships: Dreams Come True
This year, 86 talented and bright students received more than $135,000
in scholarships for college and high school education through individual
funds at CCF.

Many of these scholarships funds are named for beloved teachers, princi-
pals or students. The students who receive awards are told the stories of
these funds— of a young girl whose love of music comforted her to the
end of her fight with cancer; of a couple who valued the pursuit of a good
education above all else; of a college student just starting to find his calling

CCF’s First Unrestricted Gift Ever
Mr. and Mrs. James Lubs Fund at CCF surpasses $125K after 20
years of giving back

In 1986, Mr. and Mrs. James D. Lubs were the first individual
donors to create an unrestricted fund at CCF.

Ruth Heffron, then president, knew that Mr. Lubs under-
stood the foundation’s potential and she sensed that he
might personally invest in that potential by creating the
Mr. and Mrs. James D. Lubs Fund as an unrestricted
resource for CCF.

second employee), remembers waiting in the car while                 Battery Soccer Party: Brian Hussain (CCF - VP of Finance) joins

Retiring board members this year covered CCF’s proverbial waterfront from Summerville to Walterboro to Moncks Corner to
Beaufort. This eclectic and enthusiastic graduating class has given many hours of talent and travel time to build CCF and to
share our work with others. Thank you for your tireless advocacy—Alan Moses, Will Helmly, Johnny Linton and Wayne Unger.

                            her good fortune with others. She
                            helped many young people pursue
                            their educational dreams.
