Dr. Linda P. Brady made a gift of $60,000 to fund the Brady-Heyer Family Scholarship Endowment. The purpose of this gift is to support scholarships for the UNCG men’s basketball program. The endowment links the Brady and Heyer families, including sons Stephen A. Heyer and Michael S. Heyer, and their shared love of college basketball. Her husband was Steven Heyer.
Brady served as chancellor 2008-15, during which time UNCG men’s basketball increased its profile, with enhanced strength of schedule and its move to the Greensboro Coliseum as its home court. Brady, who retired as political science professor last year, attends many men’s and women’s basketball games to cheer on the teams.
