021710CampusPeople_GilliamAll are invited to a reception honoring Steve Gilliam, assistant vice chancellor, University Relations. He is retiring at the end of this month, after 33 years of service to UNCG. He was named director of University Relations in 2002 and was named assistant vice chancellor for University Relations in 2007. Campus Weekly has benefited from his many news pieces over the years – a very small part of his responsibilities but a great value to CW readers. The reception will be Thursday, Feb. 25, 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in Virginia Dare Room, Alumni House. Everyone is welcome to drop by to help celebrate his career.

Three theatre students stood out at the Kennedy Center/American College Theatre Festival Region IV design competition held in February at Middle Tennessee State University. Erika Grayson won the first place David Weiss Lighting Design Award for “The Seagull.” Kate Devine won the second place David Weiss Lighting Design Award for “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.” Angela Howell took first place in the Crafts Competition for “Lion” and an earned an honorable mention in the David Weiss Costume Design Competition for “The Tempest.”
