Kudos to Maria Ulrich: At the International Affairs Forum (IAF) season opening event on September 15, Maria Ulrich led a team of student interns to provide live sound production and support a livestream broadcast. As an Audio Tech. instructor and the Milliken Auditorium Tech., Maria put her professional expertise and leadership into action to the benefit of her students, IAF, and the greater community, including the audience gathered in the auditorium and online. Phenomenal job, Maria and Audio Tech students Jacob Benker, Brian Grage and Geoff Norman Anderson.
Kudos to Frank Jabour for passing the first FAA inspection in his role as Chief Flight Instructor. Thank you for your leadership during this process.
Kudos to April Dehring and the Hawk Owl Cafe Staff: April very kindly worked with the chefs in our cafe to determine whether or not a vegetarian soup being served was also vegan. April and the team went out of their way to check the ingredients and I purchased a delicious bowl of soup! There was even a labeled vegan soup the next day! Thank you to April and the entire Hawk Owl Cafe team for going above and beyond!
Kudos to Great Lakes Culinary Institute Faculty, Staff and students: Congratulations to the faculty, staff, and students of the Great Lakes Culinary Institute who worked day and night to feed some very hungry hockey players and scouts. The GLCI prepared and served meals for the Detroit Red Wings and the many NHL scouts that came to watch the prospects the week before. Eleven days of meals (approximately 1,100 meals served) and there have been nothing but compliments from the DRW Organization. The faculty, staff, and students went above and beyond to combine great tasting food, but with plenty of nutritional value for top athletes. The relationship between the GLCI and the Red Wings goes back to 2013.
Kudos to Patty Cron-Huhta: Patty spent multiple hours over multiple weeks preparing for GLCI to host the off-site catering event for the National Hockey League Prospect Tournament and the Red Wings Training Camp. Once the functions were confirmed Patty spent hours creating volunteer work schedules for students, staff, alumni and past GLCI staff, equipment lists for each meal, moving equipment to and from GLCI and Center Ice Arena and preparing all the function rooms for the appropriate serving equipment and table set up at Center Ice Arena. Patty worked every day of the 11 day function and made it seamless for the culinary team to come in and feed over 1,100 meals.
Kudos to Jim Morse: Jim spent multiple hours over multiple weeks preparing for GLCI to host the off-site catering event for the National Hockey League Prospect Tournament and the Red Wings Training Camp. Once the functions were confirmed Jim spent many hours creating menus that were creative, appealing and nutritional balanced followed by requisitioning all of the food necessary for the 11 day event. Jim worked with volunteer staff, students, alumni, and past GLCI staff to ensure the 1,100 meals were prepared and transported properly and safely to Center Ice Arena. Jim also worked many hours at Center Ice Arena setting up and serving food to players, coaches, scouts, team officials and Center Ice Arena crew.
