A video was shown documenting the accomplishments of Moe Gaebe in acquiring the small Johnson & Wales business school with his partner Edward Triangolo in 1947 and growing it to its status as a multi-campus university today.
J&W Chancellor John Bowen recounted the wonderful personal qualities of Moe Gaebe in his treating all people as equally important. The small business school located in Providence that Moe Gaebe acquired in 1947 is now a full university located in 4 states with 14,000 students and 2,000 employees.
This growth has been enabled by following Moe’s decades-old strategy of constantly adding new areas of study to match the changing skills needs of employers.
And as a Rotarian, President Don noted that Moe was always willing to support club causes and activities.
