M.J. Giammaria Featured in Friends of UNCW Video

Sunday, May 02, 2021

The Watson College is pleased to share a new Friends of UNCW video featuring M.J. Giammaria, administrative associate in WCE’s Education Lab.

Since 2018, she has received Friends of UNCW grants to support a kitchen classroom kit to enhance students’ Ed Lab tutoring experience.

Dawn Brown ’08M, Access Services Coordinator for Randall Library, is also featured. Brown received a Friends grant to support literacy at D.C. Virgo.

The video, created by UNCW’s media production team, was first shown at the Friends Grant Award Ceremony on May 19.

The Friends of UNCW is a volunteer organization that formed in December 1963 to help Wilmington College (now UNCW) increase the library's holdings from 11,000 volumes to 50,000 volumes — a minimum requirement at the time for accreditation as a four-year institution. The Friends have been steadfast UNCW supporters for more 50 years. The organization's current contributions include the annual funding of special projects based on proposals from UNCW faculty and staff.
