BNCB Gift Certificates – Lesley Deal

With the website once again being fully operational, four winners of Barnes & Noble College Bookstore gift certificates were chosen from those registering to win on the website.  The winners were:  Linda Endris, Mary Beth Nanz, Christie Shepherd, and Mary Ann Wild.  From this point forward, one winner will be chosen each month.

Honoraria – Kim Wells

The $150.00 scholarship honorarium was awarded to Ruben Borrego and the $50.00 book honorarium was awarded to Kelly Bowling.  Congratulations to each of them.

Silent Auction – Leslie Turner

Leslie reminded everyone that this may be a good time of year to contact those companies and individuals who were unable to contribute to the Silent Auction last fall due to funds being allocated earlier in the year for donations.  Companies, especially, are creating their budgets at this time of the year and allocating those funds for donations now.


Staff Assistance – Alice Watson

One person has applied for assistance due to family and personal medical/financial problems.  After discussion, a motion was made and seconded (Mary Ann Braden/Diane Fuchs) to award $200.00 to the staff member in the form of an IU Credit Union gift card. The motion passed unanimously.  Mary Ann Wild will contact the recipient to make arrangements to get the card.

Thanks to everyone who shared refreshments today with your fellow SC members and new employees, and to the committee for planning today’s event.

With no further business or announcements, the meeting adjourned at 11:00 a.m.

Respectfully submitted,

Lesley Deal
