Thank You, Facilities Services!

I want to extend my thanks and tremendous appreciation to the Facilities Services staff for the outstanding effort and commitment you displayed in clearing the campus during and after this week’s snow storm. The extremely low temperatures and wind made for very difficult working conditions. I’m not telling you anything you don’t know but that it is just plain hard work.

We sometimes forget how physically demanding your jobs can be. I would be remiss if I did not also give our housekeeping/custodial staff a huge “shout out’” as well. They were instrumental in maintaining doorways and high traffic areas in our buildings. Their efforts are ongoing as we continue to track in snow, ice, salt and sand. I’m partial to them but our crew in GW is top notch. The entire campus community is grateful.
