Orland Bethel Family Honored at Pitt Cathedral of Learning Society

On Friday, June 21, 2024, University of Pittsburgh Chancellor Joan Gabel hosted a private reception and dinner to induct new members into the Cathedral of Learning Society. The Society recognizes donors who have given or pledged more than $1 million to the University. The induction into the Cathedral of Learning Society is among the highest honor the University bestows. Mr. Orland Bethel and his wife, Dolly, were among the honored guests whose remarkable leadership and support inspire others to recognize the power of knowledge.

It was Mr. Orland Bethel’s generous gift that created the Orland Bethel Family Musculoskeletal Research Center to attract and retain talented scientists here at Pitt, advancing breakthroughs in orthopaedic and musculoskeletal research. We are eternally grateful to Mr. Bethel and his family for their transformative gift.
