Philanthropists James and Esther Ferguson Inducted into Order of the Discoverers

On Wednesday, June 8, 2016, Executive Director Mark P. Del Mastro inducted James and Esther Ferguson into Sigma Delta Pi’s prestigious Order of the Discoverers. The Fergusons are well known for their philanthropic activities throughout the southeast region, but most notably for their donation to the College of Charleston of two historic buildings in Trujillo, Spain for the purpose of providing study abroad opportunities to students.  This year the College of Charleston commemorates 20 years of its study abroad program in Trujillo, thanks to the generosity of the Fergusons.
