Chris Fay, director of grounds, will retire at the end of this month. He has been at UNCG since 1980. He received the Gladys Strawn Bullard Award at April’s UNCG Excellence Day – and this short video was shown. He noted that the beautiful grounds are a factor in people choosing to become a Spartan. “My grounds team staff is just an outstanding group and also my sports turf team,” he said.
