One of our Emeriti,  George Vuicich passed away on Monday November 2 at home with his family. He joined Western Michigan University in 1967 as a full professor and taught until his retirement in 1993. He received numerous grants for summer teaching institutes and worked with high school teachers from around the country. Vuicich mentored and advised many graduate students and co-authored a geography textbook. Upon retirement he continued to teach online courses, was very active in the department, and will be missed. He brought his boundless energy, love of teaching and learning, and a genuine caring to everything he did and everyone he met. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the family for the establishment of the George Vuicich Geographic Education Scholarship Fund. The family is planning a memorial at Kanley Chapel for December 19, at 11 a.m.
