Your blogger is sorry to report the passing of George Rich ’54. George was a native of Brockport, and grew up on the campus so to speak, going to both the Campus School and the college. He worked as an elementary school teacher in Rochester schools, and while still working and in his retirement was extraordinarily active in Brockport alumni affairs. He was president of the Alumni Board for six years, 1998-2004, and continued to be active in Alumni House affairs afterwards. In addition to serving in executive roles, George and his wife Rosie were active Brockport sports boosters, always taking part in the annual picnic to welcome back the football team. He was active just this past summer in the very successful Campus School reunion too.
The family suggest that in lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the George Rich Student Philanthropy Award, SUNY College at Brockport, 350 New Campus Drive, Brockport, N.Y. 14420.
