Photo Contest Results, Winter 2020

Main content start

Appreciation of the world around us runs deep in our community and our employee winter photo contest proves the photography talents of our faculty and staff are abundant!  

Faculty and staff were invited to share photos taken between Dec. 15, 2019 and Jan. 15, 2020 to showcase family, friends, and adventures. Members of the Community Engagement long-range vision initiative had the tough task of identifying 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place results for each of our six categories. Many thanks to all our contributors; enjoy the photos in our galleries!
