The TRiO staff at QuESTT, Inc., is saddened to announce the sudden death of Bruce Mercer who has served as our Summer College math instructor for many years. Bruce was an outstanding math teacher who was both a teacher and friend to the students he taught. Bruce was truly a bright spot at QuESTT's Summer College. Our thoughts are with Bruce's family during this very difficult time.
