Employee Health Benefits are provided by YABC.net

Last year we were tasked with creating a district wide wellness initiative that promotes increased fitness and health among employees and students, campus safety overall, communication goals, conserve resources and that explores district mental health service needs.

The work group broke the initiative down into steps and Employee Wellness was the first area chosen. We sent out a Wellness survey to all our employees in the spring and 168 employees responded.

The “You Make a Difference” Red Plate Recognition Program

Julio Morales, Institutional Locksmith

Julio Morales of Facilities Management & Planning is our next Red Plate Recipient. While I don’t work directly with Julio, I have noticed him on campus over the years. He participates in campus events and is always friendly. I’ve watched him greet various people on campus, and it’s consistently been with a kind and welcoming tone. Recently, we were both working on a Friday and he saw me approaching a locked building. Seeing me and noticing I was carrying materials, he stopped his work so he could unlock and open the door for me. He embodies our values and is a prime example of a campus culture that embraces unity, respect, and passion. Thank you, Julio, and congratulations! I am honored to work alongside you.
