On Wednesday, July 10, the Athletics Department and Director Ken Tyler hosted the Rappahannock Rotary Club at the Anderson Center. The program was planned to introduce former Redskins defensive back Darrell Green to the club members. Mr. Green has been hired by the UMW Athletics Department as special assistant for student athletic development and relations. He credited a remark from President Hurley as the impetus for his decision to join the UMW staff. It was a quote from the UMW video, “A Small School With a Big Heart”:
“I often say to people, close your eyes and imagine what a college campus looks like, and you’ll be standing on the University of Mary Washington’s campus in Fredericksburg.” (see http://www.umw.edu/a-small-school-with-a-big-heart/ )
The meeting was chaired by Vice President for Administration and Finance Rick Pearce who was recently elected president of the Rappahannock Rotary Club.
