Florida State University graduate Russ Morcom has been extraordinarily generous with both his time and his support both to athletic and academic programs at FSU. He and his wife, Genie, are usually in
the front row of most athletic events and are popular throughout campus.
Morcom, who earned a degree in engineering at FSU, is one of only four people to serve two terms as chairman of Seminole
Boosters. During his first tenure from 2006-08, the $75 million Seminole Boosters Legacy Campaign was launched.
Russ was named a Trustee to the FSU Foundation Board and the FSU Alumni Association
inducted him into the Circle of Gold.
The Morcoms provided the lead gift to the Morcom Aquatic Center, which the Seminole swimming and diving programs call home, and which has become one of the
nationís premier venues for national competitions.
They have also made lead gifts to the Booster Endowment Fund and substantial gifts to football, academic diving and the psychology department.
In 2013, Russ received the George Langford Award from the Seminole Boosters.
