|George Halkett was recruited to be the Director of our new Nancy G. Held Equestrian Center in 2004. Since that time, the Equestrian Center has almost doubled in size. George is meticulous and is known for his critical eye. It is joked that anything out of order shouts and waves at him as he walks by. Due to this, the Equestrian Center is known as a premiere facility. It is because of his hard work, long hours and devotion to the equestrian life that the Held Center is a source of pride for the College. George has been instrumental in the rise of Equestrian student recruitment which benefits both the Center and the College. George’s mind never stops thinking of ways to improve processes and he is always developing new initiatives to benefit the Center, College and community relations. George’s reputation, extensive knowledge and wonderful way with people make him a valuable asset to the College. Thank you for everything you do!|
