Whereas, the Greg Adams Tennis Center was built in 1977, under the direction of President Robert R. Martin, to honor a local athlete, who at age 16 won the 1974 Kentucky State Singles Tennis Championship, then shortly afterward, suffered a life-altering injury; and

Whereas, the Greg Adams Tennis Center is a valuable community resource making EKU and Richmond a better place to live, work and go to school, and;
