A community-wide memorial service will be held on the University of South
Alabama campus today, Wednesday, Oct. 2, for USA President Emeritus Gordon
Moulton, whose career spanned most of the University's first half-century
and culminated with 15 years as USA's president. The memorial is set for 4
p.m. in the Mitchell Center arena on campus, and Geri Moulton will receive
guests immediately following at the same location.
In order to allow students and faculty to attend the memorial service,
classes will not be held today from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on the University of
South Alabama's main campus. Faculty should end classes in time to allow
students to make their way to the Mitchell Center. Normal class schedules
will resume at 6 p.m.
In an effort to ensure that the Moulton family, community guests, the
elderly and handicapped are afforded a convenient place to park for the
memorial service, it is requested that USA employees and students remain
parked in their normal parking spaces instead of driving to the Mitchell
Center parking lot. If your normal parking lot is an extreme distance from
the Mitchell Center, please park in the Gamma or Humanities parking lots
off South Drive. JagTran will be running multiple shuttles between these
lots for everyone's convenience.
Dear Faculty, Staff, Students, Alumni and Friends of the University,
It is with great sadness I report to you the loss of our friend, colleague, and leader, President Emeritus Gordon Moulton. President Moulton lost his courageous year-long battle with cancer on September 28, 2013 at the age of 73.
The University of South Alabama family extends its deepest sympathies to Geri Moulton and the Moulton family. We also express our heartfelt appreciation for President Moultonís long-time service and his transformational leadership of the University.
