Howdy Staff!
On behalf of the 2018 Staff Appreciation Week Committee, I thank you for your support in attending the week of events held in honor of all staff at Texas A&M University, local A&M System Office, agencies and affiliates, as well as SSC Services for Education and Chartwells.

A very special thank you to President Young for his support of this week and for his sincere gratitude, enthusiasm, and advocacy for staff employees. We can't do without YOU, President Young!

To the supervisors who went above and beyond to ensure that their staff felt valued and appreciated and who encouraged staff to participate in SAW2018, we salute you!  You truly are leading by example.

We were so pleased to see all the photos posted to our SAW Facebook page of the departmental celebrations!  From these photos a random drawing was held for two departments to receive a monetary grant to be used for future staff appreciation and/or staff professional development efforts in 2018. Congratulations #SAW2018 Grant Winners: Texas A&M Institute of Biosciences & Technology-Houston, and Texas A&M Engineering Communications!

And finally thank you to the local and campus businesses that donated prizes and gave discounts during the week. Congratulations winners! View the list of Grand Prize Winners to see if you won! Prizes must be claimed by Friday, May 4.

Remember, staff appreciation is something we can keep going all year long because we have the best staff in higher ed!  We can't DO without YOU!
