UMW administrator receives achievement award

The University of Mary Washington’s vice president for economic development and regional engagement has received the Patricia Lacey Metzger Distinguished Achievement Award.

Meta Braymer accepted the award today at the 18th annual Leadership Colloquium for Professional Women, according to a UMW press release.

The event, attended by 200 professional women at UMW’s Stafford County campus, featured a speech by Vernice “Flygirl” Armour, the nation’s first African-American female combat pilot.

The Metzger award, which recognizes people who uphold high standards personally and professionally and fulfill a career goal of “significant stature,” is in memory of late UMW professor Patricia Metzger.

Braymer has spent more than 30 years in higher education and has held various positions at Mary Washington, including as dean of the faculty and vice president for graduate and professional studies.
