One comment on “Award Winners–Red Carpet Picnic

  1. Oh – and the additional award for “Cleanest Office” goes to Wayne Barnes, Ellis Reference. There were a couple other additional awards suggested, but these came too late to be incorporated into the survey for everyone. I’ll consider adding them if we do this again next year.
    Also: those winners who didn’t attend the picnic or were not present for the awards portion of the picnic will receive their certificates via campus mail or in-person delivery over the next week or so.
