Condolences for E. Gene Pool

George King posted on 12/9/18

To the family and friends of E. Gene Pool: My deepest sympathies. Gene was a valued, long-time colleague at the Illinois Education Association, during which time he gracefully adapted to and supported the changing mission of the organization. That was his wonderful nature; "When there's a job to do, give it your best." Gene leaves a legacy of decades of service to Illinois teachers and education employees past and present. He was part of a team that fought for collective bargaining rights for teachers in the 60s, 70s and early 80s, saw those rights achieved and watched proudly over the next 30 years as tens of thousands benefitted from the results. Thank you Gene! Peace.
