On behalf of the Commencement team, our sincere thanks to the Facilities staff who did outstanding work supporting Commencement events. We are so grateful for the partnership with so many units in Facilities and the tireless support from the staff who helped make Commencement a huge success.

We greatly appreciate the leadership and support from Devin, Rob, Kenny, Gary, Al, Kathy, James, and Mike, who participated in our logistics team year-round to help develop the support plans. They are incredible collaborators, who go above and beyond to plan and implement every detail of the setups. I am so impressed by their work ethic and commitment to getting it right. Their support is unwavering.

Given the scope and scale of these events, Commencement would not be possible without the incredible support from the Building Services, Grounds and Building Maintenance, and Electric shop staff. The work of the Building Services unit to setup all the graduate and guest seating with precise measurements, while making the sites look pristine, is impressive. They take great pride in their work, and it shows. The GBM unit works tirelessly to create beautiful and well-functioning venues out of open spaces. Kenny’s group is everywhere, making sure everything from a small PA to a massive stage is powered and ready to go. I am certain there are many other units, working behind the scenes, as well. Also, what I mentioned above is certainly a fraction of what they do. Their ability to support Commencement in so many ways is incredible.

We are so thankful for all the terrific support. It is such a pleasure working with the Facilities staff.

Congratulations to the entire department for helping deliver something very special to the University community.

Sincerely,

Nick
