Tri-C’s Veterans Upward Bound Director Wardsey Gates Dies

Wardsy GatesDear Student Veterans, Friends & Colleagues:
It is with a very heavy heart that I inform all you of the untimely passing of Tri-C’s Veterans Upward Bound Director, Wardsey Gates, this past Saturday night from a heart attack.  An Army veteran, Wardsey served both his country and the College with distinction.  Under his leadership over the past seven years, the Tri-C Veterans Bound Program rose to the top as a national model program within the VUB – TRIO Community.  In fact, Tri-C’s Veterans Upward Bound Program is the oldest of its kind in the nation coming into existence in 1972.
Information about funeral services will be forthcoming.  I ask that all keep Wardsey and his family in your prayers.
