SAAC Corner

News from the Staff Association Advisory Council.

Thanks to everyone who attended the Holiday Craft Bazaar on Dec. 6. From baked goods to art and jewelry, the event was a great success.

Faculty and staff on main campus can participate in the 2013 Biggest Loser contest from Jan. 23 to April 3. The $10 entry fee includes a Biggest Loser T-shirt, weekly activities and team and individual prizes (teams are 4 to 7 people). Email Bryan Curtis at to sign up. Teams must be in place by Jan. 4.

The PAWS (Pride, Attitude, Willingness, Service) program recognizes employees who go above and beyond in their job duties. Nominated employees receive a coin which they can then redeem for the following prizes:

  • One coin, which is worth a meal ticket to Dulany, or a fast-food restaurant gift certificate
  • Three coins, worth a T-shirt
  • Six coins, a half vacation day (with supervisor approval)
  • To nominate an employee, ask your SAAC representative for a PAWS form.

December PAWS Awards: Beth Hastings, Darin Oswalt, Scott Griffin, Andrew Koepke, Phillip Armstrong, Jason Youngquist, Tyler Hargis, Jim Innes, Kris Robinson, Leslie Kennon, Krista Vachaudez, Keila Ferree, Lance Ennen, Brian Carleton, Bill Ewens and Roy Wheeler.
