Davidson student photographers recently gave a special thanks to fifteen members of the college staff with a special display highlighting their unique contributions to life at Davidson. The series of portraits, which are accompanied by brief biographical sketches, includes Auxiliary Service and Physical Plant workers who have been at Davidson as many as fifty-seven years.

Davidson Photography Club president Kim D'Ardenne organized the project with help from Auxiliary Services Director Richard Terry and Facilities and Engineering Director David Holthouser in conjunction with the celebration of the first annual Staff Appreciation Day, celebrated on April 23.

Under the leadership of Jill Neumayer '01 and Jeremy Campbell '02, United Community Action led the efforts to recognize the college staff on Staff Appreciation Day by delivering donuts to workers in the early morning and hosting a barbeque dinner on Chambers Lawn.
