The Staff Appreciation Breakfast was a great success and we send much gratitude to Jerry Sweeney and the staff of Dining Service, Steve Uhls and his staff from the Physical Plant, Tony Erickson and his helpers from the Bookstore, and to our technicians from IRT who helped make the presentations go smoothly.
We had an abundance of prizes donated as door prizes this year and as silent auction items (due in great part to the efforts of Debbie Cattoor and the Development Office). With the delicious breakfast, beautiful new space in Woulfe Hall, the great bargains on the bookstore table, the great silent auction items, friends and co-workers, sun shiny day, it all worked together for a fun morning.
Our guest emcee Fr. Malone always seems to brighten whatever occasion he happens to be hosting, and he gave a nice introduction to, and helped us congratulate our Study Abroad Scholarship Winner: Rachel Johnson.
Another highlight of the morning was the announcement of the Staff Appreciation Award winner - Chris Igielski who was nominated by Andy Leet and Robert Werner.
This year's attendance was up from years past and comments afterward were very positive.
