- Amy Cook, accounts payable and third-party billing specialist for the UNCG Cashier’s Office was honored with the Callahan Award on Veterans Day. The award was established in 2017 to recognize a UNCG faculty or staff member for their extraordinary service to student veterans. It is named for Dr. Cheryl (Cherry) Callahan, who was the driving force behind the creation of UNCG’s Office of Military-Affiliated Services during her time as Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs. Cook has consistently provided individualized and compassionate service to the military-affiliated student community, and her service has helped countless students. See her photo here.
- Special Commencement 2020 virtual backgrounds have been released to help the graduates celebrate.
