President Riordan's Family
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.
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.
