Gateway Technical College recognized and honored the Mahone family May 16 by announcing that the Atrium in the Science Building on its Kenosha Campus will be named the Arthur F. Mahone Student Atrium.
Mahone was a well-known and well-liked 18-year welding instructor at the college.
“We are proud to be able to honor Arthur F. Mahone by naming the Atrium after him,” said Stephanie Sklba, Gateway Vice President, Community and Government Relations. “He affected the lives of students for many years at the college through his strong belief in education and its ability to change their life.
“We are grateful for the Mahone family, a strong supporter of the college to assist our students in their success.”
There will be a celebration in Fall 2019 to officially name the Atrium after the late Arthur Mahone.
In addition, Tim Mahone of the Mary Lou and Arthur F. Mahone Fund also announced the group’s continued strong support of the college to assist students with their success through a $10,000 donation to the Gateway Technical College Foundation.
“We are grateful for the thoughtful gift from the Mahone family in honor of their father and his commitment to teaching,” said Jennifer Charpentier, Gateway Technical College Foundation executive director.
“This generous investment will carry on his legacy of changing students’ lives.”
