Chaparral 2016-2017: 25.4 Classified Council Corner

Classified Council Corner (April 2017)

Classified Council Corner

Classified Council President

Classified Council has two important events this month.  First up is the spring See’s Candy fundraiser to raise money for the annual Student Worker Scholarships.  The candy choices, which are three different chocolate eggs and a box of chocolate marshmallow eggs, sell for $6 each. The “bunny” box of mixed treats is $7 each. You can see what the items look like at www.glendale.edu/sees. We recommend placing orders early with any Classified Council board member as some items sell out fast.  The candy is available now!  On April 11 through 14, there is a table in the Administration Building lobby area for in-person sales.  Stop by and support the scholarships from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., Tuesday through Friday, or as long as supplies last. 

Classified Council is sponsoring another special presentation this month. “New Unprecedented Challenges Facing Today's College Students are Making Colleges Offer More Than Education” with speakers Ellen Oppenberg and Valerie Rhaney from the Center for Students with Disabilities, held on Wednesday, April 27 at 12:30 p.m. in AD 252.  It is open to everyone and Flex/CPGU is available. The speakers will discuss challenges facing students, especially hunger, and the services that can alleviate such challenges, including the Food for Thought Pantry.  The lecture description provided by our generous speakers: “As no generation before them, this generation of college students is being encumbered by factors as: student debt, extended periods of underemployment, food scarcity. This presentation will examine factors that have contributed to this escalating crisis and will explore innovative strategies and solutions that our college and others are implementing to meet these issues head-on.”  This is a topic of much concern to faculty and staff alike.  We hope you can attend.  

Upcoming activities for Classified Council include the Classified Employees Week basketball game and Bingo games in May. The scholarship applications period will be in May as well.  Keep an eye out for emails asking for your student worker applications and supervisor recommendation letters. Recipients receive recognition at the annual Classified Council picnic, which will be held Wednesday, June 7 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Student Center.  There will also be Classified Council board elections held later this semester.   

SAVE THE DATE: Wednesday, June 7 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

We look forward to your participation in our events and fundraisers this spring.  We could not award the scholarships every year without your wonderful support!
