ABOUT THE ROY A. HUNT FOUNDATION AWARD FOR COMMITMENT TO EDUCATION IN THE ARTS AND HUMANITIES

The Roy A. Hunt Foundation Award for Commitment to Education in the Arts and Humanities was established at the Frick Pittsburgh through the efforts of Torrence M. Hunt, Sr. (1921–2004), a longtime Alcoa executive who was involved with many civic, educational, wildlife, and conservation groups.

Following his retirement from Alcoa in 1982, Mr. Hunt served as senior trustee of the Roy A. Hunt Foundation, named for his father and established in 1966. Thanks to the generosity of Mr. Hunt and the Foundation, including Torrence M. Hunt, Jr., who serves as a trustee on the foundation’s board, thousands of students have participated in enrichment activities through support provided by The Roy A. Hunt Foundation Award for Commitment to Education in the Arts and Humanities.
