Special Olympian golfer Grace Anne Braxton, a University of Mary Washington Campus Dining employee for more than two decades, putted her way to a silver medal at last month’s 2019 Special Olympics World Games in Abu Dhabi.

And the campus community wants to celebrate! UMW will honor Braxton – whom many of us know as “Amazing Grace” – on UMW’s Ball Circle TODAY (Thursday, April 11), at 4:30 p.m., with all the fanfare Mary Washington can muster.

Everyone is invited to come out and offer “Three Cheers for Amazing Grace.”

Please try to gather in front of the University Center at about 4:20 p.m. Sodexo will have an appreciation banner that everyone may sign, and cake will also be served (while supplies last!).

Tune in to NBC this evening at 6:45 p.m. to see Grace Anne’s interview.
