In Memory of Charles and Beth Printz

Shepherd University has lost two of its great community members. Mr. Charles F. Printz, Shepherd College Class of 1940 and professor emeritus of business administration, passed away on September 30, 2011, followed by his wife of 66 years, Bethel Hottel Printz, three weeks later on October 20, 2011.

Mr. Printz was instrumental in the development of Shepherd’s business program and served as chair of the Division of Business Administration for much of his tenure. He is responsible for the establishment of Shepherd’s chapter of Delta Sigma Pi, the professional business fraternity.  Up until his passing, he served as treasurer of the Scarborough Society board of directors.

Beth was Charles' faithful companion, often by his side at events in addition to her own civic involvement with the Shepherdstown community. After his retirement, Charles and Beth traveled extensively throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe.

The directors and staff of the Shepherd University Foundation and the Scarborough Society remember Charles and Beth with admiration and affection.
