A Message from Wendy Givoglu, Interim President, East and Winter Park Campuses
Winter Park Campus faculty and staff gathered on Friday, December 10, 2021, for their annual holiday party. The event began with a holiday movie emoji game led by Heather Hudson and Maria Thompson, library assistants. Next, Sharon May, faculty, New Student Experience, challenged faculty and staff to a game of “Name that Holiday Song,” and Mandy Hotchkiss, visiting professor, psychology, ended the party with a “Draw on Your Head” game where Mandy provided a series of instructions for faculty and staff to draw on their paper plates (while on their head) without looking. This was the first time since December 2019 that Winter Park employees gathered in person, so this was indeed a celebration.
In addition, Winter Park Campus employees provided gifts to the Eatonville Neighborhood Center for Families for its annual toy drive. The Neighborhood Center for Families (NCF), Eatonville, hosted a drive-thru toy giveaway for children of all ages on Thursday, December 16, 2021. The Winter Park Executive Dean’s Office accepted unwrapped toy donations and wrapping paper, which were delivered to NCF on Wednesday, December 8, 2021. Thank you to all who participated.
Winter Park Campus also hosted a holiday door contest from Monday, December 6 – Thursday, December 9, 2021. Eight doors were decorated with themes such as Snoopy, llamas and books. The winning door was voted by faculty, staff and students … and the winner was the Library door!
