Kutztown University Awards Honorary Doctorate to Richard Wells

Kutztown University awarded Richard Wells an honorary doctorate at the institution's 2022 Spring Commencement Ceremony Saturday, May 14, at O'Pake Fieldhouse. Wells received a Doctor of Humane Letters. The degree was presented by university president Dr. Kenneth S. Hawkinson. Wells came to Kutztown University in 1968 in the Department of Music and taught for 29 years. He directed the marching, concert and jazz bands, as well as the instrumental ensembles. He organized the jazz program in 1968. Before retiring in 1997 as associate professor, Wells influenced scores of graduates to aspire to excellence in music performance and remain loyal to the ideals and benefits of music and education. Many students continued their association with the university and Department of Music long after graduation because of experiences in classes and performance organizations led by Wells.
