We Congratulate Jeanne Gleason!

E. Jeanne GleasonE. Jeanne Gleason, Chair of the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, is one of five laureates named to the Greater Johnstown Cambria County Business Hall of Fame. She is joined by Joseph Mangarella, Frank Quitoni and Gary and Rose Poborsky – the first husband-and-wife team to be inducted together. The Business Hall of Fame is a collaborative effort of the Greater Johnstown Cambria County Chamber of Commerce and Junior Achievement. The recognition honors those who have made a lasting impact on the region through business contributions or efforts to improve the area. This is the 25th year for the awards.

We congratulate Jeanne on this well-deserved recognition. She is a friend to the local arts community and has received many honors, including the Chamber’s Cultural Affairs Award. She is a founding member of the Pennsylvania Rural Arts Alliance and served as its first executive director. She has served as a board member of a number of arts organizations in Johnstown and in Pittsburgh. In 2000 she was appointed to the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts by Governor Tom Ridge, and was named its chairwoman by Governor Tom Corbett in 2014.

The laureates will be inducted into the Hall of Fame during an awards ceremony on April 15, which also serves as a fundraiser for the Chamber of Commerce and Junior Achievement.
