Harper Flexography Endowment Established at Cal Poly

Press release from the issuing company

SAN LUIS OBISPO -- Ron and Katherine Harper, founders of the Harper Corporation of America, have made a generous donation to the Cal Poly Graphic Communication Department's 60th anniversary fund-raising campaign. The donation established the Ron and Katherine Harper Endowment to support flexography education and laboratory development. A portion of the funds will also be used to support student travel to flexography conferences. "The Harper's generosity has supported flexo education around the country," said Professor Malcolm Keif. "They have donated both time and money to ensure that the industry remains vital and grows with well-educated young people who plan to make careers in flexography. The Harper Endowment will propel us ahead in flexography education and will result in highly qualified graduates entering the flexo field." The endowment was funded as part of the Graphic Communication Department's 60th anniversary development campaign. The $2.5 million drive is titled Addressing Today and Preparing for Tomorrow: Partners in Education.
