Mike and Mimi Brown

More on Mike and Mimi Brown

Dedicated in 2012, the Brown Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship bears the name of Mike and Mimi Brown in recognition of their outstanding support of education at IRSC.  This very generous couple requested that the new building be named in honor of all past, current, and present members of the Brown family.
Michael and Mimi Brown are natives of Florida and longtime residents of Fort Pierce.  He is a retired banking executive with Harbor Federal and National City and Mimi is a longtime educator and gifted musician.  Their relationship with Indian River State College, which has spanned more than 25 years, has made it possible for many deserving students to attain their educational goals. 
The Browns are strong supporters of many initiatives designed to advance opportunities for IRSC students throughout the Treasure Coast.  In addition to their support of the new BCIE, the Browns in 2007 served as one of eight Honorary Commissioners for Public Safety, a dedicated group who stepped forward to provide the funds needed to equip and enhance the Treasure Coast Public Safety Training Complex.  Their support helped to make this complex a reality, providing a tremendous resource for students preparing for careers in law enforcement, fire science, and human services. 
When approached to support IRSC’s newest building, both Michael and Mimi readily stepped forward in order to offer many new educational opportunities to students.  Students enrolled in classes at the BCIE will receive training for cutting-edge careers in nanotechnology, alternative energies, sustainable building design, architecture, science, engineering and business.
