PGSF Receives Scholarship Commitment from Semper International
PITTSBURGH—October 29, 2013—Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation (PGSF) is honored to have received $5,000 as the first of five annual donations from Semper International. Along with the check, PGSF also received a Letter of Commitment from Brian Regan to establish and fully endow a $25,000 scholarship in the company’s name. Semper is the largest staffing agency specializing in the print, copy, and digital industries.
“The cornerstone of Semper’s mission is to positively impact the printing industry,” said Brian Regan, president, Semper International. “When we started the company in 1995, I never realized how critical bright new minds were to the industry’s continued well being. Now, having not just served on the PGSF board but as its Chairman, I have seen firsthand the energy and new ideas these young people bring. With the growing cost of education, it was also an imperative to do more to support them. We at Semper applaud outstanding achievement and are very humbled to know we can now assist in supporting bright minds with their mounting education costs.”
Larry Kroll, vice president of development for PGSF, also added: “PGSF is dedicated to promoting careers in print and graphics, and we are happy that Semper shares our commitment to providing financial assistance to graphic communications students. Semper International’s creation of an endowed scholarship is further proof that the company is dedicated to advancing our industry."
