George Farrar, Creator of “EagleEye,” Retires from UMW

George FarrarGeorge Farrar, our Associate Vice President for University Relations and Communications, has retired as of June 30. In his two years with UMW, George helped manage our media relations during challenging times. The press received for UMW’s Freedom Rides celebration garnered more national attention in new and traditional media than any event here of recent memory. He leaves having overseen the shaping of the future UMW brand, the development of the new web site, and the upcoming inauguration. It is important to mention in this space that this EagleEye newsletter was George’s brainchild. George is a good, kind, and ethical man whose leadership will be missed, and professionalism always admired. We’ll miss you, George, and wish you all the best!
