Gordon W. Wallace, Jr., a principal founder and driving force behind Anna Julia Cooper School, passed on Saturday, May 1, 2021 after a courageous battle with brain cancer. Gordon loved AJC and was instrumental in shaping every essential element of it. In his unassuming yet steadily tenacious manner, he shepherded the School from its very beginning, serving as the Board Chair for the School’s first eight years, and actively continuing on the board until recent months.
The Gordon W. Wallace, Jr. Memorial Endowment Fund has been established to honor Gordon’s passion for AJC. This permanent fund will provide support to the school for many years to come. CLICK HERE to read more about Gordon’s legacy at AJC and how to donate to the Fund.
