• John W. Fisher III
  • Fisher School of Technology Benefactor

    John W. Fisher III has been an enthusiastic supporter of Hodges University for many years. As an alumnus of our institution, he knows firsthand of the challenges that our students face each day as they work toward achieving their academic goals. Much the same way that his grandfather and uncles, the historic Ball Brothers of Muncie, Indiana, acknowledged the importance of higher education, John follows this heritage of giving by naming our Fisher School of Technology. This is an honor resulting from Fisher’s track record for success and, most importantly, his personal and professional values.

    Fisher graduated from Hodges University in 1995 with a bachelor’s degree in management and was honored as the university’s Alumnus of the Year in 1999. He is the son of John W. Fisher Jr., chairman emeritus and former president of the packaging manufacturer Ball Corporation and former chairman of the Ball Foundation and the namesake of several well-respected institutions, including Ball State University.

    A resident of Naples, Fisher is semi-retired from a successful career in information technology and hospitality. He is a member of the Hodges University President’s Society. A veteran of the U.S. Air Force, he also serves as a member of the American Military Veterans Education Fund Cabinet.

    Fisher supports a variety of causes, including the American Military Veterans Education Fund at Hodges, as well as the Naples Zoo, the Philharmonic Center, Red Cross, the Boys & Girls Club, Goodwill, and the Salvation Army and was a founding member of the Hodges University Foundation. He actively pursues his goal of helping provide a good education to anyone with a thirst for knowledge.
