During the public launch of Unleashed: The Campaign for James Madison University , Joseph (‘76, ‘77M) and Pamela Craun ('77) Damico announced a $1 million gift to the College of Education. The generous gift from the Damico Family Foundation will endow a Faculty Chair for Exceptional Education, supporting faculty efforts to prepare students to educate children with special needs. “With this gift, we envision better ways of connecting research to practice. We see potential for meaningful, ongoing and deepened connections to our communities and educational partners,” said Bill White, unit head of the Department of Educational Foundations and Exceptionalities.
