September 8, 2020 – Early in 2020, the Santa Fe College District Board of Trustees announced the renaming of both the Fine Arts Hall and Center Road in honor of retiring President, Dr. Jackson N. Sasser. Following the announcement, the Fine Arts Hall became the Jackson N. Sasser Fine Arts Hall and Center Road became Sasser Ln. Although delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the sign honoring both Dr. Sasser and his wife, Layne, was installed on the Northwest Campus last week.
Following the announcement during the January Board meeting, the Board of Trustees cited many of the college’s advancements under Dr. Sasser’s leadership. These highlights included being named the number one community college in the nation by the Aspen Institute in 2015, the expansion of SF’s international outreach and the addition of three new educational centers in Alachua, Archer and Keystone Heights.
New building signage for the Jackson N. Sasser Fine Arts Hall will be installed during the fall semester.
