GCC Hosts Annual Senior Day

Friday, April 21, 2017

Several Keynote speakers, along with individuals from three of the largest senior centers in the state gathered at GCC on Tuesday, April 4 for a Senior Day celebration featuring a luncheon and entertainment. The annual Senior Day event is hosted by Gateway’s senior citizen’s club, the Sages, and is focused on providing senior citizens with valuable information to enhance their quality of life.

The Sages' Senior Day, the brainchild of recently retired professor Emerita, Dr. Kerin Lee, is a long-held tradition at Gateway Community College. Over the years the GCC Sages has gathered to support GCC students by advocating on their behalf and using their votes to advance supportive legislation. Dr. Lee recently turned the reigns over to GCC Humanities Professor Susan Chenard, who now serves as the Sages liaison with the college.
