Gregg Weir excelled as a student, leader, and athlete. Coach George McGinnis called him one of the finest backstroke and individual medley swimmers ever to compete at F&M. In 1971, he won the Middle Atlantic Conference titles in the 200-yard medley in a time of 2:05.7 and the 100-yard backstroke in a time of :57.3--establishing conference records in both events. That year, he qualified for three events in the NCAA College Division championships, where he placed 12th in the 100-yard backstroke to become F&M's first All-American in swimming. He was a College Senator and was very involved in the early organization of that collegial governing body. He was an honors student in chemistry, and at his graduation in 1972, he was awarded the Williamson Medal, the highest honor a graduating senior can receive. Gregg was a third-year student at the Hershey Medical School at the time of his death in 1975. A memorial research endowment fund was established at the College in 1978.
