WakeUnited Live United: Mike Draughn

Mike-Draughn-300x175For the last two years, Mike Draughn, director of maintenance and utilities services, has served as the WakeUnited departmental coordinator for Facilities & Campus Services, but his commitment to United Way goes back a lot farther.

“Since the early ‘80s, my wife and I have made United Way our highest giving priority after our local church,” says Mike.  “It’s an honor to work with and help coordinate the folks within Facilities & Campus Services.  They are truly some of the most dedicated supporters of United Way and givers of their resources and time of any group I have been affiliated with.”

Parking lot closures for ‘Project Pumpkin’

Project Pumpkin will be held Wednesday, Oct. 29. In order to accommodate buses that will be loading/unloading children from the community, closing of partial parking lots is required. Whenever parking lots are closed for event parking, carpooling is a smart option to consider as it saves gas and time looking for a parking space.

Parking Lot Closures/Restrictions: The inner perimeter (parking spaces closest to the sidewalk) of parking Lot P will be closed. School buses will be loading/unloading in this area. Please use caution.

Faculty/Staff Parking Options: Parking Lot J, located behind Collins and South Residence Halls, is available for faculty, staff and general parking. This lot is the least utilized on campus and should provide parking throughout the day. Parking Lots A, Q and Wake Forest Rd. in front of the Chapel have routine openings on a daily basis.

If you have any questions, please contact Alex Crist at 336-758-2558.

Parking lot closures Aug. 11-13

A message from Facilities and Campus Services

We wish to share the following parking closure information and provide parking recommendations/options for faculty and staff for Monday, Aug. 11 through Wednesday, Aug. 13. These closures are being planned at a time that should cause the least disruption to faculty and staff parking choices.

Parking Lot Closures:
Monday, Aug. 11 through Wednesday, Aug. 13 - Parking Lots U and U-2 will be closed for maintenance. This will also include the Visitor, WFDD and reserved faculty/staff spaces that run parallel to the basketball courts. The road will remain open. If weather or additional time is needed for maintenance, the closure of Lots U and U-2 may extend into Thursday, Aug. 14.

Faculty/Staff Parking Options:
We recommend parking in lot W-1 during this closure as spaces are frequently available during this window of time. Whenever parking lots are closed, we also recommend alternative modes of transportation such as carpooling, bicycles or mass transit to reduce the demand for parking during these times.

If you have any questions, contact Alex Crist at 336-758-2558.

Lawrence named ‘Trainer of the Year’ at (OS1) symposium

matthew.lawrence.150x200Matthew Lawrence, custodial services training manager, was named Trainer Of The Year at the annual (OS1) Users Symposium in San Antonio, Texas.

(OS1) is a brand of team cleaning that differs from traditional, or zone cleaning. In zone cleaning, a worker is assigned to an area and carries out all the tasks necessary to clean a zone. In team cleaning, each cleaning worker is a specialist and carries out a specific task throughout the building.

Wake Forest began its implementation of team cleaning in September 2009 with a pilot team of four people on 3rd shift with Lawrence as manager. Team cleaning has now been implemented in all academic buildings.
