StARTup Incubator dedicates gallery in honor of Terry Smith


StARTup Incubator honored an influential figure in its development on Friday by naming its art gallery in honor of Dr. Terry L. Smith, who retired a year ago as dean of EU’s former College of Arts and Sciences.

The lobby of the former Biggers House, 148 Meadville St., will now be known as the Dr. Terry L. Smith Art Gallery. It is being used to showcase the work of EU graduate students.

The incubator, which moved to its first permanent home this summer, supports the creation and growth of art-based businesses in northwestern Pennsylvania.

Dr. Smith and his wife, Nora, are now living in the Washington, D.C., area and made their first visit back to Edinboro for Friday’s event. Friends and former colleagues enjoyed catching up on the couple’s activity since retirement in August 2013.

Volunteers sought for United Way VITA tax prep program

The United Way of Erie County is looking for student volunteers for its Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) & Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) Program, which allows qualifying individuals to have their income tax returns completed and filed for free.

No previous experience needed. Volunteers receive specialized training. Each year, trained university student and community volunteer tax preparers help tax filers keep more of their hard-earned money. They do this by preparing their income taxes for FREE at the Wiley Arts and Science Center on the EU campus and at other county locations, and by helping them claim the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC).

For more information, visit and/or contact Cheryl Bates at (814) 456-2937, ext. 236 or
