Andre Junior
(affectionately known as Dre) was lost to us on March 15th, 2018. He was 43 years old. He leaves behind his beautiful wife and best friend, Ericka, and his loving daughter, Ava Junior.  ***28567024_15216835600_r.jpegBorn and raised in Allendale, South Carolina, Dre was a graduate of Dartmouth College and was loved by fellow students, faculty and administrators alike. This son of Dartmouth had a razor sharp intellect, beautiful smile and easygoing personality.  It's telling that many of his friends from all points of his life remembered him as "good people". That was Dre, good good people.

28567024_15216831210_r.jpeg28567024_15216833000_r.jpegAs we reflect on our memories of Dre, we also cast our gaze ahead to band our hands together to support his beautiful daughter.  This GoFundMe campaign will raise funds that will be contributed towards a 529 Education Plan for Ava. 28567024_15216836400_r.jpeg
Ericka and Dre have always made Ava's education a priority and as a community, we want to help ensure that Ericka's and Dre's dream is realized with Ava continuing along the path that Dre and Ericka started together.  We call upon you and this amazing community of family, friends, and fellow alumni, known and unknown, to help us raise $10,000 to fund Ava's future education
We celebrate Dre's life and thank him for so many wonderful memories. In the words of Dr. Seuss "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened."
