Dr. Geraldine Savidge Martin

Dr. Geraldine Savdige Martin has been a professor of human development and early childhood education at GCC for 41 years. Her husband, Richard Martin, has supported the college through active and sustained participation in community choir and volunteer activities. In establishing this endowed Fund, the Martins intend to honor the memories of her brother, Theodore Savidge, who was a career fireman in Gloucester City and passed away in 1998; and Maurice Leonard Savidge, father of Dr. Martin, who taught his children courage and passed away in 2005. Both men were dedicated to their families and to helping other in need. Throughout the years, Mr. Martin and Dr. Martin have generously supported the Foundation’s scholarship fund by participating in fundraising events and making donations toward both general and targeted scholarships. Through this fund the Martin’s dedication and commitment to GCC’s students, especially those with the desire to learn about and understand human development and the value of helping others, will continue in perpetuity.
