Building Services staff recognized
The week of April 15 has been designated as Employee
Appreciation Week in Building Services.
The 235 employees in the department provide janitorial
and other support services to academic, administrative and
dormitory buildings on both the main and Forrestal
"This week is all about saying 'thank you' to the men and
women who work so hard to give us a clean, safe
environment," said Jonathan Baer, director of Building
Services. "I believe that our employees contribute a great
deal to the quality of life for our students too -- and few
things are valued more than when a student takes the time to
simply say 'thank you.'"
Employees will be wearing special badges during the week.
On Thursday, they will be recognized at a luncheon in the
Frist Campus Center.
