Alice Pompono, 59, Long Time SLU Faculty Member
Alice Pompono, or Ali, to those who knew and loved her, passed away on June 19, 2012 after surviving brain cancer for more than two years.
Alice was 59, and lived in West Potsdam.
She was born in Port Jefferson and grew up in Ronkonkoma, NY. She made the most of a life that was far too short.
Joyous, adventurous, courageous, a fierce warrior for justice with a kind and loving heart, she is missed by heartbroken friends in places as far-flung as Hawaii, Papua New Guinea, Australia, Italy, the Caribbean, and throughout North America.
She and her husband Richard Perry co-directed St. Lawrence University’s Kenya Semester Program for eighteen months from 1994 to 1996. In fall 2011 she won St. Lawrence University’s distinguished J. Calvin Keene Award for excellence in combining teaching, scholarship, and concerns for social justice. Among the factors determining this award were the many admiring letters from her students.
