I am so proud to be part of this amazing community. Again, this year, we want to take the opportunity to show our appreciation for everything you’ve done and to celebrate our shared accomplishments.

Our third annual Employee Appreciation Week features events for everyone, as well as your families. The schedule includes:

  • Monday, June 10 — UDid It! Picnic on The Green

  • Wednesday, June 12 — Cultivate Connections Day*
