University of Pittsburgh Names 11 New Legacy Laureates
PITTSBURGH-The University of Pittsburgh has named 11
new Legacy Laureates, Pitt alumni recognized for their
outstanding personal and professional achievements. The
Laureates will be honored on Oct. 21, Legacy Laureate Day
at Pitt, with a by-invitation-only dinner, and they will
participate that evening in "Pathway to Professions," a
career networking event for Pitt alumni.
Pitt's Legacy Laureate program was launched in 2000. Hilda Pang Fu is one of
this year's Legacy Laureates.
Hilda Pang Fu has amassed a distinguished public service
record as founder, leader and supporting player in regional
development, violence prevention, nonprofit media, and
education. Fu's successes in the community contain lessons
for all students committed to serving the public good.
In addition, she is a remarkably effective and dedicated
civic volunteer for many organizations and academic institutions
in Western Pennsylvania and, in 1999, was recognized by
Pittsburgh Magazine as one of the "100 Pittsburghers of
the Century." Currently, she serves as Director of Summer
Programs for Point Park University and is on the advisory
boards of the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business
Institute for Entrepreneurial Excellence and the Sara Fine
Institute for Interpersonal Behavior and Technology in
the School of Information Sciences. Fu, who earned the
Bachelor of Arts degree in political science and history
at the University of Hong Kong and the Master of Public
Management degree at Carnegie Mellon University, received
the Master of Library Science degree from the University
of Pittsburgh in 1976.
