COFAC Celebrates Distinguished Friend Hutinger
COFAC Celebrates a Distinguished Friend
Patti Hutinger has received the 2010 COFAC Distinguished Friend of the College award for her generous support of the college. Patti’s support of the department of art has been long standing and generous. Patti has made sure that the department of art will have funds for a visiting artist through 2013.
The Visiting Artist Fund enables the department to bring in at least one outside visiting professional each year for lectures, demonstrations and classes, noted Charles Wright, art department chair.
Paul Kreider, Dean, says, “The college and art department are grateful to Patti for her unwavering support of the art programs. She is willing to assist with needs and she is an important member of the art community. We are grateful for her many gifts over the years as well as her faithful presence at all art activities.”
Patti’s support to the art department is not all financial. She is an active learner taking classes alongside students who are much younger. She is an inspiration to the students and proves over and over that learning is forever.
COFAC thanks Patti for her generosity and celebrates her with this very special award.
