Bradford gets new scholarship fund

George and Susan Evans of Bradford have established a new scholarship at Pitt's Bradford campus in memory of Michael R. Cavalline.

The Evanses gave a gift of $30,000 to create the Michael R. Cavalline Scholarship Fund, named in memory of Susan Evans's father.

The Evanses' gift will be matched by the Reed-Coit Scholarship Challenge, which matches any gift totaling at least $1,000 that is given during a one- to five-year period, making the total gift $60,000. The challenge was made possible by a $1 million bequest by Dorothy Reed, who died in May 2001.

Of her father, Susan Evans said, "He had a high regard for higher education. That was very important to him. He believed that once you had as much education as you could get, you could do anything you wanted to."

The Michael R. Cavalline Scholarship will be awarded to promising sophomores or juniors with academic excellence in business management and/or accounting.
