Employee Appreciation Banquet

The Employee Appreciation Banquet is held annually to recognize the hard work of the student and non-student hourly staff that help make Campus Recreation great. This year’s banquet was held on Friday, May 1 in the Student Recreation Center. Over 140 employees attended and enjoyed an evening of dinner, prizes, awards, and memories. The Employee Appreciation Committee, made up of professional staff from the Campus Recreation department, is charged with planning and executing the banquet. 

This year’s banquet marked the beginning of the new theme… the Rec’ies! Students arrived to a Rec’ies themed “red carpet” photo area, and then grabbed dinner from the taco bar provided by La Luz. After dinner, the program begin with opening remarks by the Employee Appreciation Committee’s student representative, Alex Hill, who then introduced Campus Recreation Executive Director, Judy Muenchow. After Judy’s words of appreciation, the program kicked off with emcee Tyson Kehler (Campus Rec’s Associate Director of Facilities) announcing the prize drawings and the Employee of the Year Awards. This year’s area winners were:

  • Jesse Tyler, Facilities Employee of the Year
  • Tyler Kersey, Intramural Sports Employee of the Year
  • Noah Hitch, Outdoor Program Employee of the Year
  • Chelsea Murray, Personal Training Employee of the Year
  • Zach Webber, Aquatics Employee of the Year
  • Dr. Kristin Sample-Lord, Fitness Employee of the Year
  • Ian May, Maintenance Employee of the Year
  • Saibra Rubadue, Sport Clubs Employee of the Year
  • Paige Kempski, Member Services Employee of the Year
  • Julia de Jong, Recreation Supervisors Employee of the Year

In addition to the Employee of the Year awards, Campus Recreation recognizes four employees with the “top tier” awards. These four employees are chosen from the entire Campus Recreation staff through a nomination process. Over 25 employees were nominated for these awards this year from all areas, and the following four employees were recognized as the winners:

  • Kenzie Stuart, recipient of the first ever David Karspeck Risk Management Award, which recognizes an employee who upholds the policies from the department’s Emergency Action Plan and Risk Management Handbooks, and goes above-and-beyond their work duties to keep our patrons safe. This award was created in honor of the 10th anniversary of the tragic death of David Karspeck. 
  • Rudy Parks, recipient of the Exceptional Customer Service Award, which recognizes an employee who demonstrates outstanding customer service to the participants of Campus Recreation programs, activities, and events.
  • Bre Snyder, recipient of the Outstanding Leadership Award, which recognizes an employee who serves as a mentor and positive role model to their peers within the Campus Recreation department.
  • Ashley Wylde, recipient of the Campus Recreation Award, which recognizes the employee who most authentically represents the core values of the department including integrity, community, and development.

After the awards were given out and the prizes raffled off, the students gathered to watch the End of the Year video, and then take a group photograph on the grand staircase. It was a wonderful evening to mark the end of a spectacular year at Campus Recreation.

The CSU Polo Sport Club team brought home a national championship title from Connecticut for the first time since 1999.

An excerpt from the story posted on Source.Colostate.edu:

Kareem Rosser and the CSU men’s polo club team ended 16 years of frustration over the weekend, winning the program’s first national championship since 1999.

The Rams overcame a big early deficit to post a 20-17 win over rival Texas A&M at the U.S. Polo Association collegiate championships hosted by the University of Connecticut. The national title is the fourth for CSU, which also won titles in 1990 and ’91.

“Every time we would go into our arena for practice or games we would look at the 1999 national championship banner and use that for motivation,” said Rosser, the team’s captain. “It feels great to finally win that title.”

Also featured on the Coloradoan.com:

The Rams entered the Intercollegiate National Tournament as a No. 1 seed after defeating Texas A&M to win the Central Regional Tournament. CSU then edged Southern Methodist University 23-22 in an overtime shootout in Wednesday’s semifinals to advance to the championship game.

Saturday’s win provided CSU with its fourth national title since the club was formed in 1977. The Rams won back-to-back championships 1990-91 and added another in 1999.

Congratulations to the CSU Rams!

About Sport Clubs

Sport Clubs are organizations that give students the opportunity to play their favorite sport at a competitive level. The main differences between a Division I (NCAA) program and a sport club team is the level of funding, there is no formal recruiting or scholarships and we do not have full time coaches. As a sport club, the team receives a limited annual budget from student fee allocations and generates most of their operating budget from dues and fund raising activities. Participating on a sport club team is a good way to keep that competitive edge and have fun at the same time.
