Above & Beyond
Many Spartan employees serve in the Reserves or the National Guard. Chris Roys and SaQuang Lam (l-r), for example, were called up by the N.C National Guard to help vaccinate North Carolinians against COVID-19. Roys works in Information Technology Services as director of administrative technologies and support. Lam is assistant director for Student Health Services.
In the Guard, Maj. Lam is Officer in Charge at the Command and Control cell at Joint Force Headquarters in Raleigh. He coordinated where teams were deployed throughout the state.
Maj. Roys helped to ramp up some teams that supported the various sites. “All National Guardsmen answer the call to serve either our state or country when needed,” he said.
Now, the University itself has been recognized for its efforts to support its employees serving the nation in this way.
On May 20, UNCG will receive the Above & Beyond Award, part of a Department of Defense-affiliated program.
As the ceremony approaches, this post will be updated with more information – including the ceremony’s url.
