Happy Halloween!

by Teresa Gereaux on October 31, 2014

The Oct. 31 All-Staff meeting was full of characters today (more so than usual!) Several offices worked together to create group costumes. From Star Wars to Minions, Monopoly to Bernie Madoff, the costumes were quite creative. A variety of witches and cats were in attendance as well.

The meeting today was led by Aaron Fetrow, vice president of student affairs and dean of students. He declared the “most appropriate costume” to the Resource Development Office, who were dressed in a Monopoly theme, and the overall winners were the instigators of the costumes across the staff, the Information Technology Department, who were wonderfully dressed in a Star Wars theme.

The meeting included special recognition for Dianne Eary, who is retiring today from the Dean’s Office after 21 years at the College. She will be missed!
