Seminole Boosters, Inc. and the Florida State University Athletics Department have received a leadership commitment from Delores and Guy Spearman of Rockledge, Florida, in support of the Seminole Football program.
With their pledge, the Spearmans are one of the first to contribute to FSU’s Renaissance Campaign. The Renaissance Campaign is a focused effort to receive gifts in support of a championship future for the football program.
Additionally, the Spearmans have made a commitment in support of the athletic department’s upcoming investment in a football operations building as part of the five-year Unconquered Campaign.
Guy, one of the most prominent lobbyists in the history of the state of Florida, and Delores, a passionate volunteer and community leader, both earned graduate degrees from FSU. Both Guy and Delores have been inducted into the FSU Circle of Gold and are active in University leadership, supporting several other programs at Florida State including but not limited to the Unconquered Scholars Program, the Veterans Film Festival, the Veterans’ Support Fund, the Marching Chiefs Instrument Fund and many more. Delores, who serves on the Executive Committee for Seminole Boosters, joined the Board of Directors in 2017.
“I applaud the leadership of President Thrasher and Athletics Director David Coburn to take decisive leadership concerning the future of our Seminole Football,” said Guy Spearman. “They have led an excellent and thorough search process, and we couldn’t be more excited about the selection of Coach Mike Norvell to lead our football program. He has won championships, and I believe will do it again in Tallahassee. Delores and I are enthusiastically committed to the Renaissance of Seminole Football.”
“Delores and Guy are long-time friends to Florida State University, and I am appreciative of their willingness to invest in FSU Football right now,” Coburn said. “They were one the first to reach out with support when we made the transition in football and are true difference-makers and leaders for FSU.”
Delores and Guy are also loyal Platinum Chief members of Seminole Boosters Inc. and were among the very first to own a skybox in Doak Campbell Stadium.
