gershens.jpg Class is in session with Barney and Sam Gershen and family.
Barnett L. ’69 and Sam Gershen and family came together at Mays for much of the day on April 5 as both the Dean’s Executive Conference Room and a first-floor lecture hall were dedicated in the Gershens’ honor. In 2006, the Gershens committed more than $1 million to establish a learning endowment.

Barney Gershen worked with Associated Building Services, serving as CEO for more than 30 years until the company merged to form one of the largest maintenance companies in the U.S. Sam Gershen is retired from a career of commercial property management, and now focuses on the family’s own properties as well as charitable activities.
