In discussions of how to inspire the collective spirit of its staff, Classified Senate VP Margie Rubio came up with the idea of a monthly “Appreciating from Within” Award to recognize the important work they do in serving Merritt’s students and the entire Merritt community. The first award was presented to Kinga Sidzinska, Biology Lab Coordinator, at the March 22 Flex Day.
In addition, to widen the scope of appreciation, Maril Bull, the Classified Senate Recorder and Editor of The Classified Voice, asked the Merritt commuity to send kudos of appreciation to Classified Staff members they would like to recognize for their service. The overwhelming response resulted in a heartwarming three full pages in the March newsletter and an appeal from Maril to keep them coming.
