Staff Appreciation Day Photo

Contest Goes to Best in Show

As we wrap-up another Staff Appreciation Day, we would like to extend thanks to everyone who contributed to the success of the day. We have updated our web site at with a complete list of volunteers as well as the organizations that donated prizes for our raffle.  If you visit any of the off-campus venues, please extend the campus’ thanks for their generous donations.

Thank you to everyone who entered photos and/or voted in the Staff Wall of Fame Photo Contest!  As one of our busiest walls in the Zinfandel Dining Room, all attendees took great care in viewing and selecting their favorite photo for each of the categories!  Winners have received a $25 gas gift card.
