Positive Appreciation & Reinforcement (PAR)
The Facilities Department has a Positive Appreciation & Reinforcement (PAR) Team in place. Its charge is to recognize those employees who exemplify the mission, vision, and values of the Facilities Department.
PAR regularly presents several awards throughout the year: Employee of the Month, Performance Recognition, Winning Spirit, Step-Up, Teamwork, Innovation, and Safety awards. Each year the Facilities employees are rewarded with the annual "Thank You Breakfast" to recognize all the hard work done to prepare for Commencement Exercises. The Facilities annual picnic in the park is also put on for all employees and retirees. At the annual Christmas Luncheon Director's Awards are presented to ourstanding employees, along with the presentation of the Employee of the Year.
