Arol Shack passes February 18
Since the Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences opened in 1990, Arol Shack, a department assistant in doctoral program at MSASS, has coordinated art exhibits and created an important venue for new and local artists to exhibit their works—many with a social theme that has reflected the work that the MSASS faculty and students have undertaken. Shack died from complications of a heart attack on Sunday, February 18.
Services for Shack will take place at Fairmount Temple, 23727 Fairmount Blvd. in Beachwood on Wednesday, February 21, at 1 p.m. The family will receive friends at The Village Social Room, 26000 George Zeiger Drive in Beachwood on Wednesday, following the service until 9 p.m. and on Thursday from 5-9 p.m.
Contributions can be made in her memory to The Arol Shack Dissertation Fund, C/O The Dean’s Office, Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, 10900 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland , OH 44106-7164.
