Newman Donation Largest One-Time Gift in UJ History
On virtually every street sign and billboard in the Jamestown community is the Newman stamp. Newman signs was founded in 1956. Shortly thereafter Harold Newman was instrumental in the building of The World’s Largest Buffalo at the Frontier Fort giving the city the title “The Buffalo City”. Today Newman Signs, Inc. is one of the 10 largest sign manufacturers in the nation and one of the largest employers in the city of Jamestown. Harold Newman has left his mark on the Jamestown community in an unrivaled way. The next Newman stamp is the largest one-time donation ever to have been gifted to the University of Jamestown.
The gift has been given in honor of the late Harold Newman and his wife, Mary, to further the mission of the University of Jamestown. A portion of the gift will be used to fund nursing scholarships and the rest will be used to fund the building of the new athletic arena. Harold and the Newman family have been supporters of the University of Jamestown for the last 4 decades. From the 1970’s up to his passing in February, 2014, Harold was a Jimmie booster club supporter and could often be found at basketball games.
Lawrie Paulson, Athletic Director at the University of Jamestown, expresses much pleasure at this gift. “The projects to upgrade and add to the existing athletic and recreation facilities will have an immediate, positive impact on hundreds of current students, and thousands of future students, by providing modern space for practices, competitions, and recreational activities. A very large percentage of our students participate in [...] Read More
