We have a tradition of coming together just before the beginning of each fall semester to welcome new Selkirk College employees. This year the event took place on August 30th in the Castlegar campus staff lounge and was emceed by Director of Human Resources, Gary Leier.
Part of the event’s tradition is having the employee complete a questionnaire. To say that our MC had fun with the responses would be an understatement. One particular question seemed to be the source of much hilarity: ‘Tell us something about yourself that we may find surprising?’
With responses such as ‘I ran buff across the Lion’s Gate Bridge’ and ‘I did a very bad break dance at a camel wrestling event in the far east’ and an MC with a devilish sense of humour, how could the event be anything but thoroughly enjoyable.
Not all new staff was able to make it to this event but the many who did must certainly have felt welcomed; we in the audience certainly got to know them a little better.
