Remembering John A. Zeigler, Jr.
We are sad to note the passing of John A. Zeigler, Jr., a philanthropist, mentor, and artist. Zeigler was a pillar of the South Carolina arts community and winner of a 2013 Elizabeth O’Neill Verner Award for Lifetime Achievement. His tremendous impact included establishing scholarships and awards and providing support for individual students and organizations such as the College of Charleston and Spoleto Festival USA. His philosophy was that each of us can – and should – make a difference in the lives of others. He passed away Oct. 2 at the age of 103.
