The Technical College of the Lowcountry Foundation has announced that two new Directors have joined its Board. Elizabeth “Liz” Clist and Stephen R. Duvall will begin their terms at the April Board meeting.

Mrs. Clist brings over 30 years of board, sales, and marketing experience to the TCL Foundation. Her resume includes Vice President of Marketing for the Naisbitt Group headed by John Naisbitt, author of the classic book “Megatrends.” As an executive with the Hyatt Corporation, Mrs. Clist established the Park Hyatt Hotel brand. She later founded Clist Consulting to help businesses facilitate their employees’ professional and personal growth.

A recent “transplant” to Hilton Head Island and Bluffton, Mr. Duvall is the Executive Vice President for Strategic Account Development for CareCore National LLC. Mr. Duvall has 29 years of sales and sales management experience within a broad array of healthcare disciplines including managed care, long term care, pharmacy, and specialty benefit management.

“Our TCL family is very excited that Liz Clist and Steve Duvall have joined the Foundation board,” TCL President Dr. Tom Leitzel said. “Liz is very involved in the community, and Steve has jumped right in to serve as a volunteer in various capacities. I know they will help spread the good word about how effective TCL is in educating students for careers and further college studies.”

TCL Foundation Executive Director, Louise Mathews, added, “I am looking forward to working with Liz and Steve to move the foundation forward in its support for TCL.”

Since its founding in 1983, the TCL Foundation has awarded close to $2 million in scholarship funds. In the last academic year, TCL Foundation donors provided funding for 167 scholarship awards that helped talented, deserving individuals achieve their educational goals.

In addition to providing scholarship assistance, the foundation establishes private sector support to further enhance the college’s teaching and educational capabilities while supporting TCL’s vision to provide innovative workforce solutions.
