Accepting AwardCONGRATULATIONS! TO Janis Juarez, (it’s me folks, it’s really me!!!!) winner of this year’s BC Foundation Faculty & Staff Excellence Award for Classified Staff. President Weber presented the award Wednesday, March 20, in a pretend meeting set up by Susan Roselle. I was really surprised even though there were little signs alarming me that something was up.  I would like to say that my heart is deeply touched by those who submitted letters to the Foundation acknowledging my work and contributions to the A&H Division and the college.  Arts & Humanities is an awesome place to work and I truly work with awesome people. A reception for all of the winners will be at the End of the Year Celebration event on June 5.
