But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.

Luke 12:48

MESSIAH 411:

Join seniors in “Baker’s Last Run” event

Late night runs with friends to Baker’s Diner is a nostalgic tradition Messiah students have enjoyed through the years. To give seniors that final visit with classmates before walking across the platform on Commencement, the Senior Class Gift Committee is holding an all-day event on Monday, May 9 and you’re invited! Join in the tradition and support the senior class gift (Lighting the Swinging Bridge) as Baker’s will donate a percentage of all profits that day!

Upcoming April Wellness Workshop

Last year, 4.5 million Americans visited their doctor with extreme shoulder pain. Of those, 250,000 had one or more of their rotator cuff muscles surgically repaired. For 53,000, repair was no longer an option, and they underwent complete shoulder replacement. Clearly, we are using and sometimes abusing our shoulder joints. That’s why our next wellness workshop topic is “Caring for your shoulder – before and after it hurts.” It’s one of the most timely health topics of our day. Plan now to come and listen to Matt Lewis, Ph.D., a professor in the Department of Health and Human Performance, share his expertise on the shoulder joint. The workshop will be held on Wednesday, April 6 from 4: -4:45 p.m. in Parmer Cinema

Making changes to academic department websites

If you are responsible for making edits and updates to academic department websites, we would like to remind you that a comprehensive set of instructions can be found at messiah.edu/academic-web. This includes instructions for adding new alumni profiles; updating faculty bios or adding new ones; updating facility information pertinent to your area; and so forth. If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact Danielle Ran or Kris Hardy in the Office of Marketing and Communications.

Expanded service awards gift program

The gift program for those reaching significant service milestones has been expanded this year! Human Resources and Compliance is now working with Terryberry, a highly regarded employee recognition and rewards company, to provide a much wider gift selection. The Campus Store, Mountz, L.L. Bean and Vera Bradley are still represented on various milestone level lists as Terryberry has graciously allowed us to include several program favorites. Along with increasing the gift options, the new program will offer streamlined processing. We look forward to feedback from those employees receiving service awards gifts this year.

2015-16 performance appraisal schedule

Performance appraisals for all administrative and staff employees, with the exception of employees in operations, are due once again on June 15. If an employee is leaving campus prior to June 15, the performance appraisal is due before they depart. Operations will continue to review their employees during the month of their hiring anniversary. Customized appraisal forms have been established to better support the environment and requirements of different areas of the college. Other areas of the College will use the standard appraisal forms found in the forms section of the Human Resources and Compliance website. If you have any questions regarding the review process, please contact Kathy Castonguay.
