Trustee Gives Quinnipiac Business School $1M

HAMDEN, Conn. (AP) _ A retired paper industry executive and
member of Quinnipiac University’s board of
trustees has donated $1 million to the university’s business
school.

The university announced Tuesday that the gift from trustees’
vice chairman Carlton Highsmith will be used for the School of
Business’ entrepreneurship program.

Quinnipiac has established the Carlton Highsmith Chair in
Entrepreneurship and will match Highsmith’s donation, starting a $2
million fund.

Matthew O’Connor, dean of the School of Business, called it a
remarkable gift that instantly raises the school’s program to a new
level.

Highsmith is the retired vice chairman of PaperWorks Industries
of Philadelphia.
