Bradshaw Performing Arts Center (BPAC)
The Bradshaw Performing Arts Center is an example of how vital musical, theatrical, and visual arts are to the Sandhills Region. The Bradshaw Performing Arts Center includes the newly renovated Owens Auditorium and three additional new venues for the enjoyment and cultural enrichment of our students and our community.
The Bradshaw Performing Arts Center will provide our students, our faculty, and our community with a landscape of state of the art theatrical spaces that will enhance the educational experience and attract world-class talent to inspire and transform our audiences.
A Legacy of Leadership
Stan and Jean Bradshaw are community leaders and visionaries whose philanthropy has impacted the performing arts for many years. They came to the Sandhills from St. Louis in 1998, bringing with them their wonderful daughters, a strong sense of community purpose, and the solid Midwestern values they learned in their native Indiana. Those values have led them to success in business and to a commitment to make their community—and indeed the world—a better place.
Stan and Jean are great believers in the empowering value of education and are great friends of Sandhills Community College. Their generosity has enabled the college to create a facility that will celebrate the performing arts and make the Sandhills an even more vibrant place to live, work, and grow.
The Bradshaw Performing Arts Center recognizes and thanks the Bradshaws for their belief in Sandhills Community College and their unwavering support of education—both on this campus and across the street at their beloved O’Neal School. BPAC was dedicated on November 5, 2019.
