President Riordan’s Family—Proud Panthers!

The Riordan-Gatewood family is Adelphi family.

President Christine Riordan; her husband, Robert (Bob) Gatewood, Ph.D.; their children, Mikaela and Mason; and their beloved Olde English Bulldogge, Georgia, joined the Adelphi family and the Garden City community in July 2015. Now seasoned Panthers, their Adelphi pride shines.

I may be a bulldog, but I’m a Panther at heart!

An accomplished academician and business professional, Dr. Gatewood is often on campus—attending games and performances with Dr. Riordan and sometimes walking Georgia and saying hello. He is a professor emeritus at the University of Georgia, author of Human Resource Selection (9th ed.) and a frequent consultant and trainer with organizations including BellSouth Telecommunications, IBM and Ford Motor Company.

Speaking of Panther pride, Georgia has become a friend, unofficial mascot and regular finals week stress reliever for Adelphi students.

Both Mikaela and Mason are college students.
