Campus: Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo -- July 28, 2000

New Fund Established To Benefit Cal Poly Music Department

Grace Tevis of Los Osos has donated real estate valued at approximately $170,000 to the recently established Tevis Fund for Visiting Artists in Music in Cal Poly's College of Liberal Arts.

"The fund will enrich greatly the opportunities that Cal Poly students have to listen to and learn from the best performers," said Harry Hellenbrand, dean of the College of Liberal Arts.

Music Department Chair Clif Swanson said, "The Tevis fund will allow us to bring new resources to the department that will enhance the program and benefit students directly."

"Mrs. Tevis has been very supportive of the Music Department for the past 10 years," Swanson said.

After her husband, Lloyd Tevis, retired, he became a familiar sight in music classes. Swanson remembers him as a "tremendously perceptive student who enjoyed taking our classes and made them a pleasure to teach."

"We are grateful for Grace Tevis' continued support," Swanson added, "since few California State University music departments have such thoughtful and loyal benefactors."
