This year’s award is being presented to the entire student staff of Recreational Sports for their perseverance and commitment to the program during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The student staff remained diligent in adhering to and enforcing the Covid-19 safety protocols in order to have the Recreation Center remain open for our students to use for their fitness and wellness needs, to provide intramural sports and group fitness offerings to help keep our students remain engaged outside the classroom and to broaden their fitness activities.
