Raider Salute to Neal McGladdery

Campus Dining would like to salute Neal McGladdery in the Facilities Department. Neal went out of his way to refurbish the two old turnstiles at the Raider Grille last week when they finally rusted through and broke off. He was just asked to remove them, and he did. However, Neal had them rewelded with new steel plates, brand new paint, and even attended to the internal components so that they operated smoother.

Thank you, Neal, for your hard work.
