On Oct. 17, the CSU Employee Appreciation Board honored Central Receiving to thank that department’s staff for truly exemplary service.
The group was nominated by Bob Schur, executive director of the Department of Policy, Risk & Environmental Programs, for going far above and beyond by providing support to Rams and CSU fans at football games, other major CSU events, and even Fort Collins events like Taste of Fort Collins.
Schur wrote, “This crew works practically around the clock — sometimes until 3 in the morning after a full day — to put up and take down tents for tailgating, provide a bike valet during the game, bring in rental lockers for fans to leave their stuff that can’t go into the stadium, and — unbelievably — haul five 16,000-lb. barricades into place and operate them throughout the game day in support of CSU Police and campus safety. This is in addition to their regular, demanding jobs in central receiving, mail services, and surplus property.”
“They have also taken on the Herculean task of opening and operating a huge off-campus warehouse to give departments affordable storage options, and for the last three years have also operated The Spoke, an on-campus bike repair and maintenance shop that provides free or low-cost help to students, employees and anyone needing help with their bike. This crew is simply amazing.”
Recognition for hard work
The CSU Employee Appreciation Board recognizes employees for their hard work and promotes community spirit among CSU faculty and staff through events such as breakfasts and luncheons.
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.
