The Panthers’ Football Championship Fund is used to enhance such critical areas as the student-athlete experience, facilities, recruiting and advancing technology. “On behalf of our football student-athletes and coaches, we thank Kathy and Steven for their extremely generous commitment,” Lyke said. “Though I have only been in Pittsburgh a few weeks, it has been awesome to meet our loyal donors and even more inspiring to see their generosity positively impact the lives of our student-athletes. “The Guttman’s investment not only emphasizes that sentiment, it underscores how vital philanthropic support is to our competitive success. We are grateful for Kathy and Steven’s belief in the leadership of Coach Narduzzi and the trajectory of our football program.” A 1968 graduate of the University of Pittsburgh, Steven Guttman is founder and chairman of UOVO Fine Art Storage and has more than 40 years of real estate development experience. – Read More
