Over the past couple of days I entered the work lives of members of our grounds, housekeeping/custodial, and maintenance staffs along with several other members of the Cabinet. Of course in my case someone was there to snap photos for proof and posterity.
I learned during this time what is probably obvious to all of us - that this group of employees is among the most dedicated, hard-working, and cheerful people we have on staff at SCC. Whether finding ways to cut costs, increase efficiencies, or make the campus even more beautiful, this group works with a smile and a ready hello for everyone. I also learned that I should keep my day job.
I was truly moved by my work with members of these areas and intend to do this again regularly. I did eventually finish that window and move on to other things, honest. Clearly, though, speed and efficiency were not on my side, and I noticed that Judy kept going back over my work 'just to check.'
Please continue to thank our hard working and dedicated staffs in these areas. We are truly blessed to have the great people that we have taking care of our campus 'home.'
