In memoriam: Tomas Garrett-Rosas

Alumnus and former esteemed colleague of the Ronald E. McNair Program, Dr. Tomas Garrett-Rosas, was found dead Sunday, Jan. 6, 2013.

Tomas is remembered as someone who was devoted to the McNair program and its mission in many capacities.

“I am honored to have known him as a scholar, father, husband, son, and dear friend,” said Donte L. McFadden, assistant director of the Graduate School’s  Diversity and Opportunities Program.  “Tomas was part of the first cohort I ever worked with as a program advisor, and it was a beginning of an ongoing friendship that has lasted a decade.”
