Charleston College President Andrew T. Hsu shared the following message with the campus community regarding the National On-call Worker Appreciation Day, which takes place on October 2, 2021, to honor the vital role of on-call staff of the College:
Dear campus community:
If the whole college is a stage – with our students and professors playing the lead roles – then our staff, in most cases, are the ones who actively and quietly work behind the scenes to keep the whole show running smoothly.
I would like to take this moment to shine the spotlight on those members of the off-stage campus community who often go unnoticed and thank them for their hard work and attention to our campus.
This Saturday, October 2, we are celebrating National Goalkeeper Appreciation Day. This is an opportunity for our campus community to thank the men and women who clean and repair our campus so that our students, faculty and staff can work and learn in an environment like no other.
Our facilities – a rare combination of century-old structures and modern buildings – make our campus visually stunning, while also presenting unique cleaning and maintenance challenges.
On behalf of the entire campus community, I would like to express our appreciation for the hard work of our babysitting team, especially during the months of the pandemic. Our team of gatekeepers have played a vital role in the success of our university and their work has been essential in ensuring the safety and health of all.
Make sure to say hello and share your appreciation with our babysitting staff today and every day! Thank you and Go COUGARS!
Andrew T. Hsu, Ph.D.
