October 7, 2019, Murfreesboro, North Carolina - An assortment of industry representatives is making a concentrated effort to expand the graphic communication library at Chowan University in North Carolina. They are seeking industry support through the donation of books, printing related magazines, journals, and related material. The library is especially needing books in the graphics field. This is an opportunity for everyone to contribute towards educating young people who are studying for a career in the graphic communication industry.
The publications will be housed in the Graphic Communications Department with full access allowed to students. Chowan has hundreds of graduates who are now professionals working in industry positions across the United States. These include owners and presidents, sales managers, supervisors, and technical trainers. Chowan graduates have had, and are having, a significant impact on the success of every aspect of the graphics industry.
Longtime and well-known industry consultant, Raymond J. Prince, is one of the leaders of the effort to gain materials for the school. Prince stated, “I am proud to support this effort and encourage my friends and associates to assist with the request for materials. It is a great way to have a significant impact for the good of the industry.” Interested parties should contact Ray to learn more and to coordinate potential donations. Ray Prince can be reached at: [email protected] or 605-941-1492.
Industry members are reminded that many collections have been discarded when not designated for a donation when someone passes away. Putting Chowan or other deserving schools in your estate plans should be considered. Monetary gifts are also being accepted and can be sent directly to the Chowan University.
