Pittsburgh, PA.—At its April board meeting, the Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation (PGSF) elected several new members as well as re-electing existing members to a second three-year term. The PGSF Board directs an endowed fund of just under $10 million that is dedicated towards encouraging young people to consider the graphics field as a career and then assisting in their education process to facilitate that end.

Nominated for new three-year terms on the board were:

  • Judy Durham, Association for Print Technologies
  • Roger Gimbel, Gimbel Companies
  • Todd Luman, Interprint
  • George Ryan, retired industry association executive
  • Walter Vail, Vail Paper Management

Nominated for a second three-year term were:

  • Ray Hartman, Industry consultant
  • Laura Lawton, Lawton Printing
  • Jules Van Sant, Pacific Printing Industries

These directors, along with the rest of the board, bring a diverse cross section of industry experience to leading PGSF and maintaining relevance in a changing industry and educational environment.

PGSF recently released new career materials that have been widely praised throughout the industry. Attracting youth, training new employees and replacing current workforce loses are major issues for companies of all sizes across the country. The Foundation is actively addressing these issues and providing tools for companies to enhance their own efforts in this area.
