Rich Parker is a tremendous worker who has been serving as the event manager here at Carlisle for the last 10+ years. Rich takes a great deal of pride in the work that he is does and does a great job with the setting up and tearing down at many of our activities. I still remember the first home football game of the season, marveling at Rich's routine and how he did everything with precision and excellence. That work ethic continued through the winter seasons, and now into the spring. Rich is a great asset to our department and I know many students and fans appreciate everything that he does. I know I do. Thanks Rich.
Vicki Born joined us in mid-September. Vicki handles our student eligibility, takes care of our programs for home events, communicates with many vendors, handles the paying of our bills, works on some special projects for us, not to mention many other day to day duties. One of the biggest things she does though is handle the scheduling of our facilities, which can be a juggling act. Vicki is very organized, a self starter, and a people person. She's a fantastic member of our team. Thanks Vicki.
I also would like to thank Kris Cooper and Mr. Calhoun who helped in my transition here last summer when I started on July 1. They were a lot of help.
It takes more than just the three of us to accomplish what we try to do each day, and there are other secretaries, administrators, and employees who give us a great deal of support and help. Thank you to all of the folks who contribute to the Activities Department and have helped in my first year here. Couldn't have done it without each and everyone of you.
Not much life changing or personally challenging in today's blog except this. Have you taken the time to say Thank You to the people in your life who help you each and every day? It may be a family member, a fellow employee, or a friend, but whoever it is take time today to have:
