Milligan faculty, staff spruce up campus for upcoming fall semester
MILLIGAN COLLEGE, TN (July 30, 2009) — Milligan College’s faculty and staff will take a break from their normal work routines tomorrow, July 31, for the college’s Campus Work Day.
The annual work day invites faculty and staff to help with the final touches of sprucing up the campus for the beginning of the fall semester. Projects will include painting, trimming, landscaping and cleaning around the 181-acre campus.
“Maintenance crews and volunteers have worked on campus improvements and preventative maintenance all summer,” said Milligan President Don Jeanes, who along with his wife, Clarinda, has made the continual improvement of campus facilities and grounds one of his long-term objectives. “With the last-minute touches from the faculty and staff, the campus will be in top shape when students return in mid-August.”
The work day will kick off with a continental breakfast at 8 a.m. in McCormick Dining Center located in Sutton Hall, where employees will volunteer for various projects. The day will culminate with a 12 noon “thank you” picnic lunch at McMahan Student Center.
“We have a beautiful campus,” said Jeanes. “And the faculty and staff support is further evidence of the commitment and community spirit that we have at Milligan.”
