Look who's outstanding!

In April, the CSU Employee Appreciation Board recognized the Facilities Management Moby Custodial Teams 8A & 8P for their hard work and dedication to CSU. 

The teams were treated to an ice cream social and a raffle for prizes from the CSU Bookstore.

More than just Moby

This group not only takes care of Moby Arena, but also Hughes Stadium, Aylesworth Hall, Green Hall, Rockwell Hall, the Early Childhood Center and Scott Bioengineering each day. 

Employees stepped up and met the challenges of staff shortages, lack of student assistance, shortages of community-service workers and injuries while meeting the high level of expectations set by the athletics department.

Thank you Custodial Teams 8A and 8P, for helping make CSU a fantastic place to work!

Your Employee Appreciation Board

The CSU Employee Appreciation Board, originally formed in 1968, recognizes employees for their hard work and promotes community spirit among CSU faculty and staff through events such as breakfasts or luncheons. Each month the APC also hosts a prize drawing for all faculty and staff who submit an entry form, including a coveted reserved parking space for a full month.

The board meets monthly during the academic year to discuss and plan employee recognition events, as well as to help promote University events. One of the main objectives of the board is the monthly recognition of a group, entity, or college.
