I am still reeling from this development, as are Hayward’s colleagues here at FIT. We will forever remember Hayward’s vibrancy, elegance, acuity and minimal accommodation of mediocrity.
A bright light has been dimmed but not forever. Rest in peace, Hayward.

I was shocked to hear this sad news. Hayward was a friend, mentor to students and was always there when you needed him. He was a wonderful supporter of FIT and provided scholarships to needy students studying abroad. I will miss him dearly but will always think of him.
