Wabash’s long time director of Financial Aid, Clint Gasaway ’86, said his farewells earlier this week. He’s leaving snowy Indiana for the warmer confines of Claremont McKenna College in California. You can read the story and see the photos here.
Clint’s been a difference maker here – starting in Admissions and then making the transition to helping every Wabash family in Financial Aid. It isn’t easy, let me tell you. A lot of need and a smaller chunk of aid.
In my very short tenure in Admissions, I talked to Clint several times about different potential students. He got it. He understood. Clint has a daughter, a rising senior and a great young lady, who is a star basketball player on DePauw’s National Championship team. He KNOWS what college families face.
He was always helpful – even when there wasn’t any help to give. He approached it just like any Wabash guy would – ALWAYS seeking the best possible outcome.
Our loss is CMC’s gain. Safe travels, my friend.
