Meet Our New Senior Director For Development

The Weatherspoon enthusiastically welcomed Michael Watson, UNCG’11 to the team in November 2021 as senior director of development. A proud Spartan and having grown up in Greensboro, Watson graduated from the University with a degree in history. Before returning to campus, he earned a master’s in public administration from Georgia College in Milledgeville, where he served as a senior donor engagement officer and interim assistant vice president of donor engagement. “I’m thrilled to return home to UNC Greensboro, particularly at such an important time for the University,” Watson says. “The Weatherspoon is one of its crown jewels, and the museum’s part in the Light the Way campaign will help further the goals of access, inclusion, and transformation to the benefit of our students and the communities we serve.”
