While everyone on the Hood campus is essential, there are times when one segment of the population is more essential than others. Never has that been more evident than this winter when our facilities and dining staffs were called upon to deal with a record amount of snow and the complications caused by cancellations and delays.
A special thank-you breakfast was held March 21 for the folks who cleared the sidewalks and parking lots more often this year than in they did in the previous five years combined—to date, 45 staff put in a total of 1,075 man hours in snow removal efforts—and for the dedicated dining services staff who, despite the often treacherous road conditions, reported to work to feed the hungry students who live on campus.
President Volpe and the senior staff were there to greet the diners, and President Volpe and Jason Schultz, dining services operations manager, manned the buffet line.
Hood is grateful for such dedicated community members!
