Shout Out: Physical Plant A&E

“They packed up their stuff to telecommute, packed up their offices for the impending third floor remodel (with no previous notice – 27 carts and over 100 boxes) and still got out three projects this week!  I think they deserve an extra shout-out, because they worked tirelessly to get it all accomplished. I know everyone is working hard, but packing for the move really put the demands on my staff quite high. Some were already unavailable, so really the nine staff members who were there packed the thirteen offices, the interiors library, the CAD drafting area, and the reference library. The epitome of teamwork, I’d say.”
