Title

Article "Gray Court Receptionist: Mrs. Green Is WC 'Mother'"

Description

This article by Kenny Powers is about Mrs. Rae Green, a receptionist and switchboard operator in Gray Court. Mrs. Green said that she had a very close relationship with the women living in the dorm during the time she worked there, claiming she was like a big sister and “mama away from home” to many of the residents. Many of them did not talk to her at first as freshmen, but eventually “came out of their shell” and built a bond with her. Some of the residents echoed Mrs. Green’s sentiments of her being a sister and mother figure for them. Mrs. Green was married to a campus police officer, Sgt. Willie Green.
