Longevity awards and TV trivia highlight staff luncheon

It wasn’t really Corporal Klinger from MASH in pink and yellow finery but the outfit was close enough to earn Brad Bailey, accountant, Resource Management, the Best Individual Costume prize at this year’s Staff Council Spring Luncheon.

More than 100 classified, professional exempt and CU Foundation staff filled the UCCS University Center Ballroom May 26 for a TV-themed celebration that featuried costumes, contests, door prizes and staff awards.

Led by Provost Peg Bacon, those who attended observed a moment of silence in memory of longtime UCCS dean of students Ron Wisner who died in a May 21 bicycle accident.

Martin Wood, vice chancellor, University Advancement, served as master of ceremonies, announcing names of award recipients and calling out the winning numbers for door prizes.

Wood presented recognition awards to officers of Staff Council and the Professional Exempt Staff Association as well as longevity awards to staff in recognition of continuous, permanent service to the UCCS campus. Steve Linhart, executive director, Student Support and Judicial Affairs, conducted TV trivia contests with panels of audience volunteers.
