Honoring the Simones (June 16)

The RIT community has united to honor Albert and Carolie Simone. The legacy of Simone’s 15-year presidency and the impact of Carolie Simone’s work with the National Technical Institute for the Deaf and her many other contributions will be remembered at RIT through funds named in their honor.

The special funds are being designated for areas identified by each of them as having special significance in their lives. Gifts honoring Simone may be made to the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. The Carolie R. Simone Endowed Scholarship at NTID will be established to honor RIT’s first lady.

Those wishing to be a part of this effort can contact the Office of Development at 475-5500.

In addition, a gala community tribute to President Simone and Carolie Simone will take place June 16 at the Gordon Field House and Activities Center.

The event, titled “How You Start is How You Finish,” is open to all. It begins with a 6 p.m. reception followed by dinner, a program and dancing to the Gap Mangione Band.

Tickets for the black-tie optional event are $100.

For more information, contact Cindee Gray at 475-4987 or at csggrl@rit.edu.
