UNCG Campus Weekly

Campus Weekly is published each Wednesday when classes are in session. In the summer, it is published biweekly.

25th wedding anniversary? The Rawk announces it.

J Debrew and RawkNow that’s a sign on the Rawk you don’t typically see. “Happy 25th, Mom + Dad.” On the other side: “Our story began here” and “Jackie ♡ Clint.”

Campus Weekly asked Dr. Jacqueline Kayler DeBrew about it.

“Our 25th wedding anniversary is today,” she replied, the morning of May 8. She and her husband, Clint, met at UNCG – actually at a Tate Street bookstore.

“We met our sophomore year at UNCG at Addam’s Bookstore.” She was buying books and politely declined his offer to drive her back to her residence hall with the stack of books, she tells us. “But we met again by accident in the lobby of a friend’s dorm. We’ve been together ever since!”

DeBrew family

They have two children, ages 20 and 16, who joined their parents for photos at the Rawk that evening in celebration of 25 years of marriage.

Dr. DeBrew, clinical professor and director of the RN to BSN Program in the School of Nursing, is a “triple alumna” – ‘91 (BSN), ‘96 (MSN), and ‘08 (PhD, Higher Ed). She joined the UNCG Nursing faculty in 1997. Her husband graduated in ‘91 with a BS in Business Management (Marketing). He works in sales in the building supply industry for BMC (formerly Carolina Builders).

Happy Anniversary, Jacqueline and Clint!
