Story

Executive Constantine issued the following statement on the passing of Bill Gates Sr.: 

"Bill Gates Sr. was a champion for our region, and for the things that make this corner of the world so special. He was towering, both figuratively and literally, and leaves behind a legacy of philanthropy, advocacy for higher education and progressive tax reform that can serve as inspiration for our entire region.
