NEWS AND STORIES SPOTLIGHT
The Property Management Advisory Board had a clandestine plan. On a warm April afternoon, members assembled for a behind-the-scenes tour of Lane Stadium with Rosemary Goss, the longtime recipient of the board’s endowed professorship.
Toward the end of the tour, just after Goss walked under the famous Hokie Stone that football players touch for luck before the start of each game, the group stopped. Curtis Mummau ’92, chair of the advisory board and senior vice president of the real estate company Cushman and Wakefield | Thalhimer, directed everyone’s attention to the tunnel’s entrance way. As Goss watched, Mummau unveiled a plaque whose inscription read, “Gateway to success beyond the field in honor of Dr. Rosemary Goss.”
This honor was just the first of two that paid tribute to Goss’ contributions to the property management program at Virginia Tech. The second surprise came later that evening in the form of a professorship named in honor of Goss, who retired after 42 years at the university.
