Following graduation, Greg served as the alumni advisor for his fraternity and has also remained active in the Philadelphia alumni chapter. This past homecoming, Greg spearheaded an effort to bring back multicultural alumni. His efforts yielded a great response. Many multicultural alumni and their families attended the event, sponsored by the Black Alumni Caucus, reengaging them with their alma mater. Greg is an active member of the WCU Black Alumni Caucus.

Greg makes his home in Elkins Park, PA with his wife, Claire, and two daughters, Kamaryn (12) and Kamille (9). He is an avid golfer and sports enthusiast. Greg is an active member in his church, Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church, currently serving on the deacon ministry of the 14,000 member church in Philadelphia, PA. In communication with WCU about this event Greg wrote, “I like to model my life after the passage of scripture in Philippians 4:13.... 'I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me'
