Bonnie B. Foreman

Retired Teacher

St. Petersburg, Fla.

After graduating from Stetson in 1968 with a degree in Elementary Education, Bonnie Brown married Edward Foreman '67, JD '71. She taught as an elementary school teacher in Pinellas County for 34 years.

In honor of her late husband, Foreman established the Edward D. Foreman Most Distinguished Student Award at the College of Law for the "best all-around student" who has demonstrated a passion for the legal profession and commitment to community service. She has since established the Edward D. Foreman Scholarship for academic merit and leadership, the Edward and Bonnie Foreman Biodiversity Lecture Series and a new SPCA Adoption Center that bears Edward Foreman's name and honors his love of animals and wildlife.

The College of Law inducted Foreman and her husband into its Hall of Fame and recognized her with its Distinguished Service Award, and the SPCA Tampa Bay named her its 2006 Philanthropist of the Year. She continues her work with Pace Center for Girls, the Pinellas Education Foundation and the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. She has served on the Stetson University Law Board of Overseers and joined the Board of Trustees in 2007.  In May 2019, upon completing 12 years of service with distinction on the Board of Trustees, Bonnie was named Trustee Emerita.
