Remembering Herb Gross
We at NYSMATYC are deeply saddened by the passing of one of our organization's founders and great leaders: Herb Gross. In 1967, Herb became the original president of NYSMATYC, the first discipline related two-year college group in the nation. In 1973, after many years of refining and reimagining the role of a mathematics instructor at two-year colleges, he became the first president of AMATYC. Herb was endlessly energetic, a master educator and storyteller, and a tireless advocate for mathematics education.
Herb touched countless lives, and changed the way many of us view our roles as educators. You will be sorely missed, Herb. Rest in peace.
