By George Johnson Scene Editor Sunday evening, Gerald (Jerry) Gilman Conder, arguably UVSC's most valuable employee, passed away due complications that followed a failed liver transplant. He was 61. During the 25 years Conder devoted to UVSC, there was scarcely an area of the college Conder had not directly influenced in some way. Conder originally came to what was then called Utah Technical College at Provo on September 1, 1972. In 1976 he was appointed department chair and held that office for 13 years. During that time, Conder focused on turning "The Tech", then a two-year college, into a community college which would offer a wide range of two-year degrees. But he didn't stop there. Conder almost single-handedly gathered together the majority of the teachers who currently work in the business department . He hired them to gather a talent base sufficient to make UVCC into Utah Valley State College with accredited four-year pro grams. "Out of all the people in the business management department, Jerry has contributed more toward the growth and progression of the whole department than any other business management faculty member. He was also the greatest friend to the Vocational Co-Op Education," said David Litchford, a business management professor. Conder participated in numerous vocational accreditation teams which evaluated schools throughout the inter-mountain west. He also gave lectures and assisted faculty from other colleges to help with their accreditation.
