President’s Medallion Awarded to Hal and Susan Fetterman
Toccoa Falls College is honored to recognize Hal and Susan Fetterman as the 2022 recipients of the President’s Medallion.
Hal and Susan Fetterman started their lives together on October 4, 1958. When they said their “I do’s”, neither of them had any idea how God would use them to help others. Hal worked in marketing and sales, but he knew that he was wired to be an entrepreneur. He was looking for a job he could do for the rest of his life.
Hal and Susan bought a packaging company in Toledo, Ohio, and started with three employees. When they sold the company in 2007, they had 99 employees. Hal said he never wanted a company greater than 100 employees. Hal developed an expertise in packaging glass, specifically automotive glass. During the time he owned this company, he received three United States patents for techniques he used in his business. Following their entrepreneurial natures, Hal and Susan also bought other businesses including a salvage company, a second packaging company, an advertising agency, an equipment company, and a farm.
Susan and Hal have financially supported many organizations and individuals over the years. They provided the beautiful practice facilities used by the University of Toledo athletic programs and they are currently supporting pancreatic cancer research. They support their local historical society and they have put several disadvantaged students through college. Hal and Susan love the Lord with all their hearts. They have supported a variety of churches throughout their lifetime and continue to support the Kingdom of God with all their might.
When Dr. Robert Myers first met Hal, they spoke about the possibility of a nursing program at TFC. Hal and Susan recognized the need we had and provided the funding for what is now the Fetterman School of Nursing. Over the years, Hal and Susan have become wonderful friends. All of us at TFC are forever thankful for their service and generosity to both Toccoa Falls College and the Kingdom of God.
