James "Curtis" Harkness Endowed Fund Established


The James "Curtis" Harkness Endowed Fund has been established in his memory at the Greenville Tech Foundation to help students with emergency financial needs. 

Harkness held several positions during his 16 year tenure at Greenville Tech before becoming vice president of student, diversity and community affairs, a position he held until his medical retirement.  He was committed to making higher education accessible to all students.  He stated in an interview that his top goal in life was to be a servant to the college, its students and the community.  He was known for his love of people, and often was called "the gentle giant" for his height and kindness.
