The Boulder Campus Staff Council (BCSC) congratulates the 2013 Chancellor’s Employees of the Year: George “Barney” Ballinger, Martha Shernick, Larry Drees, Jennifer Law and David Kalahar. BCSC also thanks Colorado Athletics for acknowledging the award winners on the court at the CU women’s basketball game against University of California, Berkeley on Friday, Jan. 10.

The halftime ceremony had a special moment as the crowd rose up to applaud our colleagues for their hard work and dedication. For more information on the awardees, read “Chancellor’s 2013 Employee of the Year Award recognizes staff excellence” from the Jan. 9 edition of CU-Boulder Today.

Colorado Athletics provided courtside seats and VIP parking to awardees and their guests in addition to the halftime center court recognition.

All staff and faculty who attended the game received a 40 percent discount on regular ticket prices and enjoyed a contest matching #17 (CU) vs. #20 (Cal). A down-to-the-wire finish matched the pre-game hype. The only disappointment of the night was the final score, with Cal edging out the Buffs at the end.

Staff Council and Colorado Athletics are working on more ways to include staff appreciation in athletic events. Be sure to keep your eyes open for the next game night because our teams are competitive and exciting. Go Buffs!
