Charles E. Kaylor Sr. Excellence in the Arts Award The Charles E. Kaylor, Sr. Excellence in the Arts Award was established at The Community Foundation of Westmoreland County to foster the continuing education of students from the Greensburg Salem High School who have demonstrated a love of, and proficiency in, the arts. Mr. Charles Kaylor, Sr.’s long career in commercial art and advertising provided the principal for this fund. His love of most art forms made logical the establishment of his legacy. Passion, pride, drive and knowledge, individually, may not necessarily provide success, but when they are employed together, they almost always do.
