Guilfordians recently lost an icon of the college, Stuart "Rock" Maynard. This history blog wouldn't be worth its salt if I didn't include the story of his loyalty, service and dedication to Guilford and his influence on generations of Guilfordians. His story and the eulogy from the Guilford website, below.
Stuart “Rock” Maynard ’43, head baseball coach at Guilford College from 1952-84 and mentor to countless students, died Wednesday at his Greensboro home. He was 94. A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. April 13 at New Garden Friends Meeting. Those who knew Stuart are invited to share memories on the Guilford College Facebook page.
