The Florida State University College of Business has received a major gift that celebrates and further cements the legacy of one of its most beloved family members, student supporters and university boosters.
Mary W. Solomon last week committed $1 million to establish the E. Ray Solomon Family Floor in Legacy Hall, the future five-story home of the College of Business.
She made the gift in honor of the late E. Ray Solomon, her husband of 65 years and the father of Susan and Earl. He retired in 1997 and died in 2019, two years after his induction into the inaugural class of the college’s Charles A. Rovetta Faculty Hall of Fame.
He remains the college’s longest-serving dean.
