Staff Day offers fun and games for all

With more and more events each Staff Day, it gets harder and harder to keep track of what is happening when.

Not this year. The Office of Human Resources has unveiled a Web site that features a complete rundown of the 32nd annual Staff Day celebration May 21.

Now, determining when to arrive for the staff recognition ceremony and whether to go on a walk or play bingo is only a click away at

This year’s celebration kicks off at 10 a.m. with the Staff Service Award and Recognition Ceremony in Edison Theatre.

Chancellor Mark S. Wrighton will host the program, assisted by vice chancellors and deans. The ceremony will honor those with 10, 15, 20, 26 and 30-plus years of service.

Wrighton will present the 10th annual Gloria W. White Distinguished Service Award, recognizing a staff member for exceptional effort and contributions that result in the enhancement of the University.

A buffet lunch and social gathering will be at 11:30 a.m. in Bowles Plaza. In case of inclement weather, lunch will be in Mallinckrodt Student Center.

From 1-3 p.m., open activities for staff members include wallyball and racquetball, swimming, self-guided Kemper Art Museum tours, running on Bushyhead Track and use of the McWilliams Fitness Center in the Athletic Complex.
