Dave Walters told me today he did not want to leave, but it was part of the process, and his time at the school on West Friendly Avenue and New Garden Road had come to end…

Dave said he loves Greensboro and he does not want to leave this town, but he has to do, what he has to do….WORK….

Walters is looking for SID work in our area, but no doors have opened for him since his release from Guilford, back in late May…..

Good Luck Dave Walters, and thanks again for the job you did at Guilford College over the past 25 years…..
