Mrs. Anita B. Winter


The Winter CenterThe Dr. Charles R. and Anita B. Winter Visual and Performing Arts Center opened on the campus of Millersville University on October 12, 2012, with the dedication of the building. With their generous donation, the on-campus center established a creative hub for students, faculty and the surrounding community in music, art and theater to share a vibrant place for local, regional, national and international artists to connect with students in residencies, master classes and workshops. Mrs. Anita Winter is a retired x-ray technician and during her retirement she enjoys visiting museums, walking, reading, gardening and theater.

Dr. Charles R. Winter was a generous supporter of Millersville University who passed away in 2013. As a physician and world-renowned orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Winter practiced in Lancaster County for more than 40 years. The Winters have been long-time benefactors to Millersville University and contributed a major gift in 2008 to fund the renovation and expansion of Lyte Auditorium into the University’s Visual and Performing Arts Center.
