The Staff Advisory Council (SAC) is pleased to announce the results of the 2013 election. Please congratulate the seven new SAC representatives from across the university staff: Shana Atkins (Advancement), Shannon Badgett (Budget and Finance Planning), David Carlson (FACS: Warehouse), Matt Clifford (Residence Life and Housing), Susan Edwards (Office of Research and Sponsored Programs), Christy Hill (FACS: Project Management), and Kim Thore (University Stores).
In addition to newly-elected representatives, Karen Frekko (Schools of Business) and Jennifer Killingsworth (Financial & Accounting Services) have been re-elected to serve an additional term. Each SAC representative will serve a term of three years and may be re-elected to serve one additional term.
The SAC received nominations from March 1-22 and held the election from April 8 – April 22. The SAC received a total of 26 unique nominations across the six staff divisions. The overall staff voting participation rate was 36 percent (566 of 1,560 eligible voters). Two divisions, Athletics and Other, did not have any open SAC positions and therefore did not participate in the 2013 election. Click here for a list of SAC divisions.
The SAC would like to thank the representatives whose terms are ending this year: Cathy Chinlund, Debbie Deheck, Teresa Earl, Tomma Guastaferro, Melvin Lee and Donna Thornton.

The Professional Grounds Management Society (PGMS) has announced that Kevin Cook of Wake Forest has become the 145th grounds management professional to successfully complete its Certified Grounds Manager (CGM) program. Cook currently serves as the lead groundskeeper at Graylyn International Conference Center.
“I wanted to become a CGM as part of my professional development at work, to further my education, and to become more established in the landscape field,” Cook said.
After completing the two-part exam process, Cook reflected on his thoughts about how the program has helped further his career.
“Through the CGM program I have made great contacts and working relationships with fellow professionals,” he said. “I have learned a lot about our individual process and now have a documented representation of our procedures. Most of all, it has inspired me to focus on our sustainability efforts here in the Wake Forest community.”
Read a full interview with Cook at http://pgms.org/kevin-cook-145th-cgm/. Those achieving the CGM professional designation must have first accomplished a set level of education and on-the-job experience and then successfully complete a two-part examination process administered by PGMS.
Founded in 1911, PGMS is an individual membership society of grounds professionals dedicated to advancing the grounds management profession through education and professional development. Further information on PGMS and its CCM program is available online at www.pgms.org.

January 25th, 2013 | University Announcement
The planned construction project at the University Parkway exit that eliminates left turns northbound (see previous story) has been postponed. The North Carolina Department of Transportation has approved the safety plan and anticipates construction will begin until this summer. As dates become firm, additional updates will be provided.
When construction begins, drivers who need to leave campus and head north on University Parkway are encouraged to use the Polo Road exit. By travelling through the light onto Long Drive, a safe left turn can be made at the intersection with University Parkway. Drivers who use the University Parkway gate will make the right turn, head south on University Parkway and then make a legal U-turn to head north.
