A retirement reception for Housekeeping Director Barbara Gainey will be held Thursday, April 30, 1:30 p.m. in Shaw Residence Hall’s Tillman-Smart Parlor. The event will be hosted by Housing and Residence Life. All are welcome to attend.
Barbara Gainey arrived at UNCG in 1992 as the Director for Housekeeping for Housing and Residence Life. She has had direct responsibility for the Building and Environmental staff, serving the resident students for the past 22 years. She and her staff have prepared and opened the residence halls each fall, as well as managing the summer work involved in hosting our many camps and conferences each summer. Gainey was the first recipient of the Student Affairs “Legacy Award,” which exemplifies her passion for student success, excellence in leading her staff and outstanding contributions to the division and the university. Housing and Residence Life and the housekeeping staff formally thank her for all she has contributed to the department and the university, and to the many lives she has touched over the years.
