Twenty-four years ago, a friend’s dad encouraged Greg to apply at CSU, and he's been here ever since. Greg has worked in various areas around campus including custodial, the print shop, and mail services. He's been in Recycling & Integrated Solid Waste for a little over a year.

Greg was nominated as an Everyday Hero, along with Scott Johnson, for being of service to an injured student. Greg and Scott were working around the academic buildings on the Oval when they saw a student crash on her bike. She wasn’t wearing a helmet, and hit her head on the curb and suffered other minor injuries.

They had just renewed their CPR/First Aid certifications and immediately put their first-aid skills to use to administer aid until the paramedics arrived. Sheela says, “I'm very proud of them for taking the time to administer first-aid to someone in need.”

Greg considers himself a team player and his actions on the Oval show just how true that statement is. When he's not at work, Greg spends his free time riding motorcycles and gardening.

As far as future plans, he is just taking it one day at a time. He says that it was pretty neat to be nominated for this award, a first for him and one to be especially proud of.
