Wake Forest University named Employer of the Year

This is a guest post from Human Resources:

The Winston-Salem Mayor’s Council for Persons of Disabilities has named Wake Forest University the Employer of the Year for the second time. Wake Forest received this award in 2012 and is honored once again for improving employment opportunities for persons with disabilities.

“We need more partners like Wake Forest,” wrote Debbie Doub, who nominated the University. Doub works as a Job Coach for the Winston-Salem Forsyth County Schools Occupational Course of Study. She partners with Wake Forest and Graylyn through the WFU Satellite Program, helping students gain real-world experience in paid positions.

Doub states that the Wake Forest faculty and staff are “compassionate and dedicated to [ensuring] that these young adults have a successful experience while working under their supervision.” Additionally, she cited the Satellite Program’s high graduation and employment rates.

The Winston-Salem Mayor’s Council for Persons of Disabilities also honored Marc Jones, Manager of Custodial Services, with the “Helping Hands” award. Doub wrote the following about Jones in the nomination: “It constantly amazes me to witness the care and true compassion Mr. Jones shares with his staff. If one person has made a difference in the lives of these young adults, it is Marc Jones.”

October was Disability Employment Awareness Month, which emphasizes the value of an inclusive workforce. Continue to celebrate the contributions of workers with disabilities using #InclusionWorks across social media.

Landscape department to remove trees

This is a guest post  from Facilities & Campus Services:

Reynolda Campus-2016 Tree RemovalThe landscape department in Facilities & Campus Services will remove five trees that are in decline at various locations (click on map) around campus and one magnolia tree near Parking Lot S to establish a sidewalk. Lot S is located at the corner of Wake Forest Road and Faculty Drive, next to the Reynolda Walking Trail.

We will do this work the week of July 4. The removal of these trees was approved by the Univesity’s Tree Advisory Committee in April of 2016.  We do not anticipate any pedestrian or vehicular issues.  We apologize for the inconvenience.
