Dr. Virginia (Jenny) Gauld was the epitome of a YWoman. A trailblazer, a tireless advocate and a visionary, Gauld, who passed away March 14 after a brief illness, was a friend to all.
The first female vice president at The University of Alabama at Birmingham, Gauld started her academic career in 1967 as a first-grade teacher. She retired from UAB in 2006 as Vice President of Student Affairs. Despite the demands of her profession, Gauld always made time to better her community.
