Central Michigan University Recognizes the Clarke Staff for their Generosity

by Frank Boles

The Clarke Historical Library staff was recognized for its contributions to CMU’s Annual University Campaign (AUC) at a University-wide ceremony on April 2. The AUC is an opportunity for the faculty and staff of the University to "invest in the continued success of CMU." Faculty and staff are asked to volunteer monetary donations to the campus unit of their choice. To sweeten the deal, the University contributes $1 for every $2 donated to the AUC. Last year, we posted a similar Clarke Historical Library News and Notes blog entry about the same recognition bestowed upon the Clarke staff.

Just like last year, we were recognized for having the highest percentage of donors for a CMU unit with less than twenty-five employees. This marks the fourth year in a row that this award has been won by the Clarke staff. Insofar as we can determine, this also represents the longest continuous period that a unit has won this award.  

So hat's off to the Clarke staff for their goodwill and generosity, whether as part of the Annual University Campaign or in their daily approach to everything they pursue!
