Democratic Women’s Cub hosts Provost Lunceford at April 11 luncheon

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — Provost Charles “Casey” Lunceford of Indian River State College’s (IRSC) Mueller Campus will be the guest speaker at the annual Scholarship Luncheon sponsored by the Democratic Women’s Club of Indian River County.

The event, scheduled for April 11, will honor five graduating seniors from local high schools chosen by the club for excellence in academics, involvement in school activities, dedication to community service, and commitment to Democratic principles.

Lunceford, who grew up in Vero Beach, is responsible for everything that involves the college in Indian River County. This includes the 250 faculty members, scheduling of classes, and the operation of all programs and activities on Vero Beach’s Mueller campus, as well as IRSC sites in Sebastian and Fellsmere.

Following graduation from Vero Beach High School, Lunceford earned a bachelor’s degree in music education from the University of Florida and a master’s degree from Louisiana State University.

He joined the facility at IRSC as an associate professor of music and served for seven years as director of instrumental music. He was appointed academic director of mathematics and natural sciences in 2004. Two years later, he was promoted to dean of arts and sciences, overseeing the college’s biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics and performing and visual arts departments.

Named provost last October, Lunceford directs a wide range of educational opportunities in Indian River County, including bachelor degree programs, associate of arts degrees for the first two years of college, and associate of science degrees for in-demand careers.

The Democratic Women’s Club Scholarship Luncheon will begin at 11:30 a.m. at the Grand Harbor Club House in Vero Beach. Cost is $25 and reservations are required; email
