Albany-  For the second time in a week Albany State University if mourning the loss of a past President.

As ASU's sixth President Dr. Billy Black was buried Tuesday, word came that ASU's fifth President Dr. Charles Hayes died over the weekend. Dr. Hayes may be best know for seeing the university through its Diamond Jubilee Anniversary. He came back to campus as recently as two years ago for Founders Day.

It was under Dr. Hayes that Simmons Hall was built. Faculty remember him best for his faculty development programs.

"There was a program set up where we received a nominal amount of money to attend school for your graduate studies specifically your doctoral degree with the understanding that you would return to the University for the amount of time you actually received finances. and this was a very creative way to handle faculty development," said Dr. Wilburn Campbell, ASU College of Education Dean.

Faculty say Dr. Hayes had some continuing health problems and had been living in a nursing home. Dr. Charles Hayes was 85.
