Mr. Creekmur, though small in stature was a giant of a man! An ole school man's man who told you like it was and took no prisoners! When he spoke people listened--students, parents, staff, administrators. While at Norfolk State University he provided unwavering love and guidance to thousands of students while providing leadership to Student Support Services, other Trio programs and the Student Government Association--thousands! I had the good fortune of being one of his SGA students and then had the privilege of working with him for years at NSU, and he never stopped loving and helping people. He changed lives!
Mr. Creekmur provided the infrastructure for the current NSU Trio programs almost 40 years ago and it continues today--not bad for a time when shoestring budgets and minimal staffs were the norm. I pray that the Lord will comfort his wife and family during this time of tremendous loss as well as the extended family of sons and daughters he so unselfishly dedicated his life to serving. His life was a testimony to how one man can make a big difference in the lives of others, he will be missed. God bless you all, He already loves you!
