Watson Donation Assists with Purchase of 9’ Grand Piano

April 16, 2013

The University of Arkansas Community College at Hope is pleased to announce a recent donation by Bill Watson to assist with the purchase of the 9’ Baldwin Concert Grand Piano for Hempstead Hall.  This concert grand piano will be featured in a matinee’ performance by pianist Jura Margulis on April 28th.

The 9’ Baldwin concert grand piano was purchased for Hempstead Hall through two generous gifts. The first gift was from Deborah and Mike Malek who donated $20,000 in honor of Deborah’s father Bill Watson and her late mother Sybil Watson. A second gift of $20,000 was from Bill Watson, made in loving memory of his late wife Sybil Watson. Bill Watson is known in the community for building the poultry industry in SW Arkansas and improving the lives of countless farm families.

Please help the UACCH Foundation thank Bill Watson for his generous donation.
