Allegany College of Maryland invites you to bring your rackets, family and friends for the dedication of the newly renovated Dr. Glenn O. Workman, Jr. Tennis Facility on Saturday, May 11 at 1:00 p.m.

ACM President Dr. Cynthia Bambara and Athletics Director/Coach Steve Bazarnic will lead the dedication ceremony. Workman, now in late eighties, will attend the dedication with his family. Sons Rick and Rodney Workman (both ACM alum) as well as Brendan Mattingly, a former ACM tennis team player and student of Workman, have been instrumental in planning the dedication and establishing the Dr. Glenn O. Workman Jr. Tennis Fund.

“We’re excited to honor Glenn with this dedication. This is the best gift we could imagine for him – the chance to watch tennis instructional professionals from around the country share their knowledge and skills with current and next generation players,” said David Jones, ACM’s vice president of advancement and community relations and executive director of the college’s foundation. “Our hope is to encourage the community to use these beautiful courts and enjoy time together.”

Event organizers will have rackets of all sizes and tennis balls on-hand for even the youngest players. Seasoned tennis players as well as those who have never held a racket are encouraged to attend. In addition to tennis lessons, instructors will offer pickleball lessons for more mature tennis players looking to transition to a less grueling game.

The ACM Foundation created the Dr. Glenn O. Workman Jr. Tennis Fund to support and enhance the tennis court complex so that students and community members will be able to enjoy the courts for years to come. Donations to the fund may be made through GiveCampus or by mailing a gift to the college’s Foundation Office.

Workman joined the ACM faculty in 1968 as a science and forestry professor and division chair until his retirement in 1992. He founded its forestry program, and established and directed the college’s Honors Program. An accomplished tennis player and member of the NJCAA Men’s National Collegiate Tennis Hall of Fame, Workman coached intercollegiate tennis teams, compiling a 99-23-1 record over nine seasons. During his tenure, ACM tennis earned three state and regional championships, and competed in the NJCAA national tournament.
