Insider and GPRC extend a warm welcome to new faculty and staff who have joined us for the 2008-2009 academic year. It may take some time before faces and names make the connection but none-the-less, we would like to welcome you to the GPRC community.
A great time to facilitate the name-to-face connection is at GPRC's annual College Community Barbecue, hosted by the President's Office, on Thursday, August 28th in the Theatre Concourse & Courtyard. The Students' Association's liquid lounge opens at 4:00 pm, introductions are at 5:00 and the feasting starts at 5:45. Don't forget to contact the President's Office in Room E201 for tickets in advance. Spouses and significant others are welcome to attend as well.
You may notice that construction has started for Student Residence Phase V east of Anderson Hall. The $4.3 million in funding for the Residence is in place and construction is expected to be completed by January 2010.
You will often hear the term "GPRC family" in reference to the environment that exists between staff and faculty at GPRC. There are also many families within the GPRC family. A great example of this is the Kimpe Family. Pat Kimpe from Student Services and her daughter Kristine Kimpe in Finance both received long term service recognition at this year's Employee Recognition Ceremony & Luncheon.
In addition to these two "keeping it in the family", Karmen Patrick in Duplicating Services is also one of Pat's daughters (and Kristine's sister). Both Pat and her husband are GPRC alumni and all four of the Kimpe children have been GPRC students at one time or another!
Watch this space to learn more about the members of the GPRC family!
