Clarence Lloyd, Class of 1965, joined the Bronco Legacy Circle after accepting a challenge from a classmate to make a significant gift to the university. Dr. Lloyd, a loyal supporter of FSU science students who wanted to continue their education, was looking for a vehicle that would allow him to “give back” in a substantial way. Lloyd decided then to make a planned gift to the university though a whole life insurance policy, and became a member of the Bronco Legacy Circle.
Lloyd graduated from Fayetteville State University with a degree in biology and a minor in chemistry. After teaching biology, math, and other sciences in a Mt. Olive high school for one year, Lloyd decided to complete his masters at North Carolina Central University. Having received the Master of Science, he spent several years teaching biology and math at Livingstone College. In 1970, he entered medical school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, completing in 1974. After completing a one-year internship in Wilmington, NC, Dr. Lloyd began a three-year residency at Bowman-Gray Medical School in Winston-Salem, NC in radiology. Dr. Lloyd was the first minority to complete the program in radiology in 1978. He is board certified in the area of diagnostic radiology and became licensed in North Carolina, Virginia, and Georgia. After working in Clinton, NC for several years, Dr. Lloyd joined the medical team at L. Richardson Memorial Hospital in Greensboro in 1980. While serving in the Army Reserves in 1990, the hospital closed. Dr. Lloyd traveled the southeast, as a radiology expert, until joining the Veterans Administration in 1999. He maintains that position to this day.
Dr. Lloyd has belonged to his local FSU alumni chapter and the Greensboro Triad Chapter for many years where he is an active participant. He is also a proud and active member of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. He belongs to several professional organizations: the Greensboro Medical Association, the National Medical Association, and the Old North State Medical Association.
Dr. Lloyd is active in his church, Providence Baptist Church in Greensboro. He has two sisters in North Carolina and three brothers who reside in Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Delaware.

graduated from Fayetteville State in 1976 with a degree in Elementary Education. Dorothy Hardy, '64, told her about the legacy gift she was giving to the university. She was convinced that this was something she would like to do. Mrs. Hall decided to make a legacy gift by naming the school as beneficiary of her life insurance policy. She designated her gift to go towards the Willis B. McLeod RISE Scholarship.
Hall said. “I thought of how proud my mother (Class of 1942) would be to know that I have done something for my alma mater. FSU assisted me in forming lifelong friendships, as well as preparing me for my career.”
Hall spent her career as an educator, first teaching Reading and then, after graduating with a MEd. from North Carolina Central University, as a Speech-Language Pathologist. Although she retired after working 30 years in Wayne County, she continues to work with them as a part-time Speech-Language Pathologist.
Mrs. Hall stays in contact with the friends and classmates she met at FSU and visits campus regularly. As current president of the Gold-Wayne Chapter of the FSU National Alumni Association, she always enjoys being back on campus for homecoming and other events. She feels great about making her legacy gift to the university that will provide for students through scholarships and said she highly recommends that others give through these avenues.
With this planned gift, Rene’ Stinson Hall, becomes a member of the Bronco Legacy Circle. To become a member of the Bronco Legacy Circle, donors must indicate FSU as a beneficiary in their will or be a participant in a planned or deferred gift such as an annuity or charitable lead trust.
Mrs. Hall’s husband is a graduate of Elizabeth City State University and they have two sons.
