Beyond her dedication to providing a clean, safe, and comfortable environment for our students, she has been a quiet source of support, providing smiles and words of encouragement to our students. She has been a role model of hard work, dedication, and perseverance for our students. Student Affairs was pleased to honor Ms. King’s retirement and present her with the Legacy Award for the impact she has had on hundreds of students over the years.

Student Affairs is proud to have such dedicated and service-minded staff and is excited to see the impact these recipients and all staff members continue to make on the UNCG and higher education communities.
