Gateway Honors Dr. John “Quincy” Adams

Online RESERVATIONS are now closed. Tickets will be available at the door on Saturday beginning at 5:45 p.m. DONATIONS: Unable to attend but interested in giving opportunities

The Washington Gateway Program, including the Gateway Academy, was a dream born from Dr. “Quincy” Adams 26 years ago. Countless young people have been positively affected because of his devotion to this program, our state, and to Shepherd University.  Please join us for this very special event to say thank you to Quincy for his years of work and dedication.


The Washington Gateway Academy has been a successful program for more than a quarter century and was historically funded through the state of West Virginia. State funding for this program is now severely limited.

Shepherd University believes in its mission and the positive impact the week makes in the lives of its participants. Ensuring that the Gateway Academy continues at Shepherd University has been identified as a strategic funding priority. The region’s youth needs financial support to continue this life-changing program.
