TALLAHASSEE – Hoping to inspire the next generation of real estate executives, Orlando businessman John Crossman has established the Crossman & Company Endowed Real Estate Scholarship at FAMU. A member of the FAMU Foundation Board of Directors, Crossman personally donated $25,000 to establish the scholarship and solicited other supporters to raise over $150,000 in additional donations. The scholarship will benefit FAMU law and business students with interest in commercial real estate.
Sharing his late father’s passion for inclusiveness, higher education, and mentoring college students, Crossman hopes to provide exposure and opportunities for diverse students to pursue careers in commercial real estate. He helped to establish student real estate clubs at both FAMU and Bethune-Cookman University in hopes of creating an official outlet for real estate programs at both universities.
Crossman is an executive board member for the University of Florida Bergstrom Center for Real Estate, Florida State University Center for Real Estate Education and Trustee for Valencia College. He is also a five-time appointee to U.S. Senator Marco Rubio’s Service Academy Nomination Board. Professionally, John and his brother Scott Crossman have established one of the region’s most successful commercial real estate firms in the Southeastern U.S.
Crossman recently hosted a fundraising reception for FAMU Students at the University Club of Orlando.
