Colleagues: trustee and pillar of the community, George Akel, passed away this morning after a long battle with illness. He was a tireless advocate for the college and many other causes in our community.
He will be greatly missed by so many. George was a true gentleman in the classic sense and a great community leader. A tremendous asset to both our college and our community has gone to God.
Our sympathy goes out to his wife, Sally, his brother Ronny and the entire Akel family. We will keep you posted on any services that may be available to the community.
