Thanks to Essential Employees Who Carry On

The university community extends appreciation to the numerous individuals who continue to carry on with ongoing responsibilities, while most of us enjoy the holiday break. Members of the University Police Department, Emergency Management and Facilities Management staffs continue to keep the campus safe and functioning properly, while individuals in Athletics Administration, First National Bank Arena, and KASU are among those we know of who attend to ongoing duties during the break. We thank them all.
