In Memory of Sandy Petrek

We are sad to announce the death of Sandra L. Petrek, the widow of Dr William J. Petrek, Richmond’s first President who served from January 1980 until December 1992.
Education was a constant source of joy throughout Sandra’s life and she was very active in supporting her husband in his role as President. In addition to her undergraduate and graduate degrees, she had many certifications and while at Richmond gained further certification from the London Montessori Institute where she later became the Vice President. We send our condolences to the family of Sandra and William Petrek, remembering especially their daughter Michele an alumna of the University.
