History:

In 2001, during the 30th anniversary, the Center of the Arts was renamed to the Greenhill Center of the Arts to honor the academic and financial contributions of H. Gaylon and Hannah Greenhill. From 1991-1999, Gaylon Greenhill served as the chancellor of the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater. During his tenure, the university developed and implemented a long list of improvements that became known as the Excellence for 21st Century Capital Campaign which included the construction of the Young Auditorium and major technological advances. Hannah Greenhill taught first grade in the Whitewater public schools for 30 years and instilled in her students an appreciation for the arts. The Greenhills have been familiar figures at auditorium events, theatre recitals, and exhibitions. Upon Gaylon's retirement, the Greenhill Endowment was established in 1999 by friends and colleagues. This endowment is used to fund the Greenhill Excellence in the Arts Awards, which are given to three incoming freshmen planning to major in the fine arts in each of their four years.
