Thirty plus years ago I had the good fortune of meeting Dr. Bob as he acquired a business segment which was divested by my employer. This transaction provided me with the benefit of Dr. Bob’s mentorship and guidance which was integral to my career and professional development. As time passed my wife and I were able to develop first hand appreciation for his unwavering passion for higher education and desire to assist motivated young adults. The Crisafi Challenge incorporates both of these tenets and fulfills Dr. and Mrs. Crisafi’s vision to provide opportunity for exceptional students to follow his UF COP path which has greatly enriched their lives. These are some of the reasons we chose to support this most worthy scholarship program which will help perpetuate Dr. Bob’s legacy.
