On Tuesday, May 16, as part of the Classified School Employee Appreciation (CSEW) week, CSEA (California School Employees Association) and the Classified Senate hosted their annual Classified Staff appreciation breakfast. With over 50 Classified Staff members stopping by between 8:00 am and 9:30 am, the event was well attended. We also had the pleasure of hosting Dr. Regina Stanback Stroud who shared with us her personal experiences with Classified and the important impact they made on her when she was a student. As she shared, the work we do is instrumental in giving our students the support they need throughout their experiences here at Skyline College. Sometimes it is the little things that we do that make a huge impact someone’s life.
Staff enjoyed a delicious yogurt bar, coffee and tea service, and warm connections with other staff members as we took a quick but much needed break in our day.
Both CSEA and the Classified Senate worked together to donate funds for the event as a way to highlight and show our appreciation for the tremendous amount of work Classified Staff do to support our colleagues, faculty, administrators, and of course our students.
Special thanks to Linda Allen and the appreciation breakfast committee for taking the time to prepare our breakfast. And a special thanks and shout out to Kevin Chak, Manager of our Skyline College bookstore for donating our coffee and tea service.
Thank you and have a wonderful summer!
