Featured Story Volunteer Recruitment for Calling Campaign

As a part of a comprehensive plan to increase Fall 2011 enrollment, KVCC has revived its “Registered But Not Paid” student prospect calling campaign. Please consider setting aside time to help this week! Email Denise Baker, or call at x4539.

Recognition Rocks!
You work hard and we know it! So, the week of August 15 to 18 has been designated Employee Recognition Week. Stop in to receive and give recognition in the Gallery (TTC 1510) on Monday, August 15th or in AWH 128 on Wednesday, August 17th. Both events run from 11 a.m.
to 2 p.m.

Activities include drawings for a travel mugs, giant sticky notes for you to publicly “recognize” or thank a colleague, a demo of the new Recognition website (in case you haven’t seen it), and, the option to assess your recognition “style” – the when, where and how you like to be acknowledged for a job well done. Share this information with your colleagues and your supervisor so they do it right!

In addition, the Bookstore joins in recognizing you by offering a 25% discount on all KVCC branded items the whole week – August 15th -18th! Get ready to welcome back the students in a new t-shirt or dress up your desk with a new mug.
