Dr. Clarence V. Cuffee Endowed Scholarship Fund
Chesapeake City Manager
Dr. Clarence V. Cuffee
1945 ~ 2006
In recognition of Dr. Cuffee's lifelong commitment to continued learning, a scholarship fund has been established in his name to help deserving students continue their education.
The goal of the Dr. Clarence V. Cuffee Endowed Scholarship Fund was to raise $125,000 for a scholarship at Norfolk State University for a student majoring in social work or education. The goal has been exceeded! Together with the community's assistance and the employees of the City of Chesapeake, $125,678 has been raised for the Dr. Clarence V. Cuffee Endowed Scholarship Fund to provide scholarship assistance to residents of Chesapeake. The Fund has been financed by the gifts given by the City of Chesapeake employees, family, friends and colleagues of Dr. Cuffee, to the NSU Foundation in his memory.
The Dr. Clarence V. Cuffee Endowed Scholarship Fund will be utilized exclusively for scholarship assistance of full-time, degree-seeking undergraduate or graduate students enrolled in the Ethelyn R. Strong School of Social Work or the school of education at Norfolk State University and who are residents of the city of Chesapeake, Virginia. Applications are now being accepted. The deadline is April 5, 2013.
Dr. Clarence V. Cuffee was a life long proponent of education who dedicated his life to the service of others. His personal pursuit of education led him to earn a doctorate in social work in 2003 from Norfolk State University. Dr. Cuffee was a teacher and a coach who mentored students in the City of Chesapeake. His career as City Manager was marked by innovations in programs and services for his constituents and by his humble but empowering approach to leadership. He was quoted as saying, "A city is more than buildings. It's people too. As a city develops, it must also develop its human capital, its people." It is evident that his thoughts heavily influenced the city's motto of "Chesapeake, the City that Cares."
