Several members of the audience also participated in the discussion moderated by Kimberly Marcott Weinberg, assistant director of Pitt-Bradford’s marketing and communications department.
Current staff member Jeff Armstrong not only talked about his time working at the university, but for working at the home of then-president Dr. Donald Swarts. He and the other panel members all had kind words to say about Swarts and his wife Mary, who they credited with giving the institution its strong foundation.
Evans also talked about other memorable characters – including some students, but said they have all done quite well for themselves. And, he pointed out that some of the activities the university tolerated back then that wouldn’t be tolerated today can be chalked up to a different era and a less litigious society. Ah, but memories will live forever.
