The South Piedmont Community College community mourns the loss of Harvey H. Leavitt, III, who passed away peacefully on Monday, October 31, 2022. Harvey served on the South Piedmont Board of Trustees from 2005 until 2015 and again in 2017 until his passing and was a longtime member of the College’s Foundation Board of Directors. In 2020, he was elected Vice Chair of the Board of Trustees as well as Vice Chair of the Foundation Board. Harvey previously served as the Chair of the Board of Trustees from 2007 to 2011.
He will be remembered for his ceaseless advocacy for education and the mission of South Piedmont Community College. He gave selflessly and generously to support students and help them discover their personal pathway to success.
In recognition of Harvey’s years of service and dedication to the College, South Piedmont Community College dedicated the auditorium on the L.L. Polk campus in Polkton, NC in Harvey’s honor. The auditorium will be named the Harvey H. Leavitt, III Auditorium.
At the request of the Leavitt family, the South Piedmont Community College Foundation established The Harvey H. Leavitt, III Memorial Fund which will provide the resources and opportunities needed for students to reach their educational goals.
