Haskin and Coaches Endowment
The visionary, the mentor, the showman… Jack Haskin affected the lives of thousands of students from 1947-1960 through his work as the men's football coach, cheerleading coach, coach of the Flying High Circus and founder of the Flying High Circus. This endowment will recognize his achievements, honor those pioneer performers, and provide supplemental coaching support to insure his ideals of safety, academics, sportsmanship, and quality are preserved. For more information please contact our Student Affairs Development Office at 850/644-5590.

Doug Lynch Student Performer Equipment Fund
Doug Lynch stood as an exemplary member and performer of the Flying High Circus from 1989-1994. His talents as a juggler and slack wire artist left an indelible impression in the hearts and minds of fans and fellow performers. Doug's impact on the organization was truly felt in his capacity to give back to the Flying High Circus. For years, Doug Lynch ascertained a need for equipment and sought a means to meet that need. In the beginning, the efforts to present gifts were solely his and his fellow performer Jim Holcomb, but over the years more colleagues added to his efforts. Our circus family suffered a great loss with Doug's passing. To honor his memory and his unwavering dedication to our organization, the Doug Lynch Student Performer Equipment Fund has been established which will directly support the student performers in their equipment needs.
