He consistently sets the bar high for exceptional standards of cleanliness and maintenance. We are blessed to have Eddie on our team. He is extremely deserving of this national honor.”  
Gray started with Newman-Dailey in 2005 and has been an innovator in the industry. He served on the board of directors for Pro Resorts, which was founded by the former VRHP president Steve Craig.
