About the Bill Treadaway Print Leadership Endowment

Bill Treadaway served as president of The Printing Industry of the Carolinas, Inc. (PICA) for almost 30 years. During that time, he served as a catalyst for many creative ideas and industry support in transitioning the Graphic Communications program at Clemson University from an infant program into the printing education leader it is today.

The Bill Treadaway Endowment for Print Leadership has been established to recognize and honor his lifetime contributions to the Clemson Graphic Communications program and his personal desire to foster industry/education partnerships and develop future printing industry leaders. The endowment will facilitate ongoing cooperation and engagement between printing industry leaders and the Clemson faculty. The centerpiece of the endowment is the Bill Treadaway Print Leadership Forum, which presents timely topics to Clemson students, alumni, and the industry at large. Contributions will ensure the memory of Bill Treadaway, who touched the lives and helped the efforts of so many.
