Dr. Ernest Nester, former Tech dean and professor emeritus, passed away earlier this week. A Virginia native, Nester was the first in his family to earn a college degree and went on to earn a doctorate in civil engineering from the University of Virginia. A strong believer in the value of education, he spent his professional life teaching others.
