One of FAU's biggest supporters calls it a career

Some already know this news, but Florida Atlantic is saying good-bye to one of its hardest and most dedicated workers.

No, we aren't talking about President Frank Brogan's apparent interest in another job.

Nina Taylor, the effervescent and enthusiastic office manager for the FAU football program is officially retiring on Tuesday after more than 35 years of working at the university.

Taylor started working at FAU in 1974 and spent most of her years working for FAU's Information Resource Management department. Since 2006 Taylor has been the air traffic controller at the Oxley Center for the football coaches and staff.

"It's been a lot of fun," Taylor said on her last day as an official university employee. "There are some amazing people here."

I knew if I ever needed to get in touch with Howard Schnellenberger, I could count on Taylor to work a little magic to get me in, no matter how late in the day it was.

Taylor truly cares about FAU and spent plenty of hours on campus after her workday was done at many athletic events with "Crash," her husband (and FAU bonfire guru).

Taylor officially begins her retirement on July 1, but she said she will still be around helping out the athletic programs when she can.

"I'm volunteering with the Owl Club and going on two football trips," Taylor said. "It's in my blood."

FAUOwlAccess.com wishes Taylor good luck in her retirement.
