Foundation Founder Has Passed Away
We are saddened by the death of Brent Wadsworth who, with wife Jean, founded the Kathleen Monahan Foundation. Brent’s life was punctuated by his giving nature. He believed in self improvement as the way of making the world a better place. He supported many organizations and charities throughout the country who share his vision. Brent and Jean have been very generous to the arts in all forms, and we are honored to have known such a man and will continue Brent’s vision in our support of the arts.
