It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Mrs. Celestine Garner, a long-term member of the School of Education community. Celestine was a Clinical Supervisor who mentored, advised, and was a valuable resource and friend to our undergraduate and graduate students who were completing their field placements. Her extensive knowledge of education and warm disposition not only made the clinical experience rewarding for our students, but it also made her a cherished colleague. With over 27 years of teaching experience in the Mount Vernon School District, she made a positive impact on countless students and their families. Our hearts go out to her family, as we remember Celestine Garner, and the many lives she has touched.
