You are truly leading by example. The spirit of gratitude and appreciation is part of what makes this university a great place to work!

Lastly, we would like to thank President Young,  Dr. Strawser, and the executive leadership team for their support of this week and their sincere gratitude, enthusiasm, and advocacy for staff employees.
