Founding dean of human kinetics turns 90

The Faculty of Human Kinetics issued 90th birthday congratulations Monday to Pat Galasso, its founding dean.

Dr. Galasso helmed the establishment in 1965 of what was then called the the School of Physical and Health Education, only the second faculty in the Commonwealth in this field of study.

Galasso and his wife retired in 1997 and returned to Kingston, where they met. They love dancing, attending grad seminars, and volunteering in a program to help students cope with the demands of post-secondary life.
