Dakota Wesleyan University’s music department now has a new name – The Ron and Sheilah Gates Department of Music.  The university recognized the Gateses for their donation toward the music program during yesterday’s Opening Convocation ceremony.  This is not the couple’s first contribution to the university.  Ron and Sheilah Gates sponsored last spring’s musical and made a donation to the Corrigan Health Sciences Center.  The Arlene Gates Department of Nursing is named after Ron’s late wife.  The first performance of the Ron and Sheilah Gates Department of Music will be the Choral Hymn Festival on October 5th at First United Methodist Church.
