Please join us in congratulating Dean Cedric Rucker on the eve of being awarded the Richmond Public Schools (RPS) Living Legend Distinction.

A Richmond native and RPS alumnus, Dean Rucker receives this honor for exemplifying the criteria of living an extraordinary, honorable life as an inspirational leader. Richmond-area alumni and friends are invited to celebrate Dean Rucker for not only this achievement, but for his lasting contributions to the University of Mary Washington, as well.

From his time as a student to his current role as Dean of Student Life, Dean Rucker has remained a larger-than-life figure on campus.  Mary Washington students, staff and alumni alike have benefited from Dean Rucker’s enthusiasm, energy and commitment to his alma mater.  Now, as he returns home to Richmond where it all began for this honor, let us gather to support this alumnus who has given us so much.  Show your appreciation, share a story or a laugh and celebrate our Dean who continues to have a major impact at Mary Washington.
