Mayo’s donation honored by College

The Music Building concert hall, which had been unnamed since it first opened in 1993, has been officially named the Mildred and Ernest E. Mayo Concert Hall in honor of Professor Herbert Mayo’s parents.

Mayo, professor of finance, has had a life-long interest in music, College President R. Barbara Gitenstein said in a college-wide e-mail last spring.

In the e-mail, Gitenstein said Mayo “agreed to fund an endowment that will support performance activity in the department of Music.” The endowment will help support activities including opera and musical theater performances, according to TCNJ Magazine.

Said Mark Kalinowski, professional services specialist for the music department: “(The music department) is proud to acknowledge a gift from a current faculty member.”
