2017 Staff Appreciation Breakfast

July 07, 2017

By David Abercia, Assistant Vice Provost and Chief of Staff 

June is the month for two of the most important events of the year: fiscal close and the divisional Staff Appreciation Breakfast. The breakfast is undoubtedly more fun than fiscal close and each year, since 2015, staff have come together to celebrate accomplishments of the past year. The event is also an opportunity to recognize staff, set aside time for colleagues to interact across the division, and ultimately feel appreciated.

This year’s event welcomed Campus Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Marlene Tromp to campus. She had an opportunity to learn more about the division and meet staff. She also helped kick off one of many drawings for door prizes, of which there were several this year.

The division also handed out the first ever Platinum STAR awards. The awards were meant to recognize exceptionally high-quality work and an exceptional or unique contribution to the unit, division and/or campus. Below is a list of folks who received the 2017 inaugural awards:

  • Julie Agoni
  • Sharon Beaty
  • Stephanie Covey
  • Jennifer Gallacher
  • Ethan Hutchinson
  • Alexandria Leckliter
  • Apri Medina
  • Christopher Mutshnick
  • Rosa Plaza
  • Sara Sanchez
  • Cole Steele
  • Beth Thompson
  • Parinaz Zartoshty

The breakfast was full of fun, games, prizes and bacon! Table activities included a blank organizational chart to be filled in to familiarize everyone with the programs in the division.
