Loss in the the TGFS Community

Dear GEMS Community:

 

It is with sadness that we inform you that our schools have experienced a great loss with the death of Yolanda Perez yesterday, September 10th, 2017.  This loss has affected us deeply.  A member of our community for more than 17 years, Señora Perez started as a teacher at The Graham School in 2000, helped open The Charles School at Ohio Dominican University in 2007, and spent ten years as a Charles School Dean. 

 

Yolanda will be remembered for her vibrant personality and the love and compassion she came to school with every day.

 

We will communicate any information about celebration of life services when they become available. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact The Charles School at Ohio Dominican University at 614.258.8588. We know you will join us in our concern and sympathy for the family.  

 

Thoughtfully,
James Kutnow
Dean and Director
