CALLISON CREATES MINORITY SCHOLARSHIP FUND TO MEMORIALIZE FOUNDER

 SEATTLE, Jan. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- The Callison Partnership, an international architectural firm based in Seattle, said today it is creating a $15,000-a-year scholarship fund for Northwest minority college students. The fund will be established on Monday, Jan. 25, the fifth anniversary of the death of the firm's founder, Tony Callison.
 "Tony believed in people and in giving back to the community. This fund is our way of ensuring that The Callison Partnership always lives up to the principles on which Tony built this firm," David Olson, president, said.
 The firm also has commissioned a special pictorial display commemorating Callison, which will be unveiled at the memorial ceremonies.
 "Tony would have appreciated the substance behind this gesture," his widow, Shirley Callison, said. "Our family is touched by the firm's willingness to live up to the ideals Tony believed in."
 The scholarship fund is in addition to the $100,000 endowments established in 1988 in Callison's name at both the University of Washington and Washington State University.
 The fund will award scholarships, at levels to be determined, to students of color in the Northwest states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana who attend a four-year state college or university and major in either architecture or interior design.
 The Callison Partnership is the largest architectural firm in Washington state and the fourth largest in the United States. The firm provides architectural, programming, planning, interior design and graphics services throughout North America, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East.
 Callison, a life-long resident of Seattle, died unexpectedly in 1988 at the age of 55.
