The Montgomery College English and Reading community is saddened by the very unexpected passing of Prof. Zach Benavidez. Prof. Benavidez will always be a loving, caring person in our hearts and memories. He touched lives and brought many smiles and creativity to our faculty, staff and students. He was a creative writing and literature teacher. He will be missed.
