Well, we’re in the final throws of the Big Bash work up…this time next week it will all be over…
There hasn’t been a lot of time to be out and about on campus…we’ve been pretty busy doing all the “admin things” to get ready.
It seems to me, as the Fifth Big Bash approaches, that I need to take the lead and say thanks to a number of folks:
Mike Warren, Michele Tatar, and Heather Bazzani in the Alumni and Parent Relations office. Without their vision, planning and plain hard work the Big Bash wouldn’t be…
Mary Jo Arthur and her Bon Appetit team who do a great job of preparing and serving all the meals, especially on Saturday night when we’ll have over 600 guests and 11 different dinners…all at the same time.
Dave Morgan and his Campus Services team for all they do to make the weekend go so well. If it weren’t for their skill and dedication it simply wouldn’t happen.
Jim Amidon, Steve Charles, Howard Hewitt, Brent Harris, Kim Johnson, and Karen Handley in Public Affairs. They’ll document the Big Bash on the web in virtually real time and their piece in the magazine will be first rate. It always is.
The Wabash campus community. The Bash, from Colloquium sessions to water bottles, is an entire team effort and you’ll see folks from the Business Office, Advancement, Admissions, Student Services, the Library, IT…well it takes the entire campus to make it work.
Thanks to all of them. Their real reward is the smiles on the faces of our alumni and their families when they return to campus and have a good time.
