The Wellness Committee is sponsoring a walking challenge for employees during the month of October. The goal is to walk 20 minutes for 20 days throughout the month. Anyone who participates and completes the challenge is to send their completed form to Jackie Kytchak or drop it off at the Student Life Office. All completed forms will be entered into a drawing and a prize will be awarded to the winner. If you have any questions, you may contact Melanie Broadwater ’98 or Kytchak.
The College recently established a great incentive program available to employees who volunteer at the temperature screening stations. Each Friday, we will conduct a random drawing from the weekly list of volunteer temperature screeners. The winner will receive a gift card to a store such as Lowes, Giant Eagle, Walmart, Sheetz or a local establishment. Winners will be contacted and announced the following Monday. This incentive program will continue on a weekly basis until at least the end of the fall semester.
If you would like to volunteer a bit of your time at a screening station and be entered to win a gift card, contact Monica Adametz at ext. 2240.
Thank you for going the extra mile to help keep our campus safe! Let’s “Make to May!”

Email signatures, brand resources, and a job request form are all available online. A Dropbox folder has been set up with instructions and the materials necessary to create new email signatures. Employees can find other Thiel College-branded resources including letterhead, logos and PowerPoint slides in the same folder.
