Anthony S. Watson, associate director of facilities operations building trades and grounds, is the first Virginia Tech employee to be featured as part of the university's new "Extraordinary Employee" series.
Watson spends the majority of his time managing the day-to-day facilities needs of a university that is larger than some small cities. His team maintains most of the campus grounds and ensures that the administrative and academic buildings are running properly. They also respond to after-hours calls for roof and plumbing leaks, electrical issues, and broken windows and doors.
In this video, he talks about what he enjoys most about working at Virginia Tech – his colleagues.
