Indian River State College Mueller Campus President Casey Lunceford was honored with the prestigious Indian River Chamber of Commerce Chairman’s Award at the organization’s 100th awards dinner on February 24, 2022. Lunceford, a longtime Vero Beach resident, was recognized for his outstanding service to the Chamber’s Board of Directors.
The Indian River Chamber established the Chairman’s Award in 1997 to recognize Board members who represent their company’s support and involvement in the community without asking or drawing attention to their efforts. The accolade is not presented every year; instead, it is awarded when a Board Member stands out for their service above and beyond the obligations of the Chamber’s Board of Directors.
“As the designated board member for IRSC, Casey has always been generous with his time to the Chamber to sit on or chair various committees,” shares Dori Stone, President of the Indian River County Chamber of Commerce. “Casey has actively participated in the Chamber’s policy development, lending his talent to our strategic planning efforts and our government issues committee. Over his seven years of service, he has helped Chamber members and staff find the right contacts at the College that can lend a hand and support the Chamber’s efforts in our community.”
Lunceford, who retires from the College later this year, has led IRSC’s Mueller Campus in Vero Beach since September 26, 2014. During his more than 25-year career with IRSC, Lunceford held roles ranging from Assistant Professor to Dean to Mueller Campus President.
