Gainesville City Schools are still mourning the loss of one of their most notable and best-loved Red Elephants. “The Gainesville City Schools lost a good friend and supporter three weeks ago with the passing of Gus Whalen,” said Delores Diaz, school board chair, at the board’s regular meeting Monday. School board member Sammy Smith said Whalen, founder of the Featherbone Communiversity, was a member of the Gainesville High School class of 1963.
