HR is Cleaning House

Mindy LaysonThanks to Mindy Layson for poring through 16 boxes, 1900 electronic records, and a decade of information to get our records cleaned up in Colleague and our file cabinet. Our filing system now only has current employees and adjuncts who have been paid since 2015. All other records have been purged-both electronically and paper wise.


Volunteers are needed for the Air Show, July 25. For more information, click to download the flyer.
