NEW HAVEN TEACHERS ASSOCIATION
Vince passed away suddenly on Saturday, Oct. 8th, 2016 in his home in San Leandro. He is survived by his wife, Usha. Vince was along time active member of NHTA. He served on the Executive Board as an Elementary Director for many years. He was also NHTA’s State Council Representative and a frequent Delegate to The NEA Representative Assembly. Vince was passionate about his union work and always strove to do what was right for teachers. Vince retired from New Haven Unified in 2014. His passing away has come to us as a shock and reminder that one should live their life to the fullest, as Vince did. He will be sorely missed.
