Arts endowment established at UPB

Richard S. and Pamela A. Johnson have given more than $55,000 to Pitt’s Bradford campus to create an endowment fund to help support the fine and performing arts.

The Richard E. and Pamela A. Johnson Endowment Fund for the Arts will help to provide enjoyment and cultural enrichment for the campus community, as well as the general public from the surrounding region, by providing funds for a wide range of arts-related events in the region.

At the discretion of the Pitt-Bradford president, the fund also may be used to help support scholarships that will be awarded to students who are majoring in interdisciplinary arts.

Richard Johnson, who retired from Petrowax, a company formerly located in Farmer’s Valley, was an honorary member of the Pitt-Bradford advisory board until 2004 and now is an elected member of the board. He also serves on the UPB Arts Council Task Force, which currently is working to develop high-quality arts-related events on the campus.

For more information on the Richard S. and Pamela A. Johnson Endowment Fund for the Arts contact the Office of Institutional Advancement at Pitt-Bradford at 814/362-5091.
