Core Values and Golden Ticket Winners

Kristen and Fran show off their tickets
You're seen plenty on this blog recently about our core Vol State values. Those values have been distilled to a series of words by the Core Values Committee. Dr. Faulkner has been discussing them in his blog, one word at a time. It's a valuable project for the college, as it can help us keep focused on what is most important to our mission and why we do what we do. Of course, all of this serious reflection doesn't mean that we can't have some fun along the way. That's the purpose for a series of contests and events that the Core Values Committee has been holding. You'll hear about those events here in the Insider and in emails.

The first event was a literary scavenger hunt of sorts. Len Assante worked with faculty to provide a series of clues tied to great books in literature and philosophy on the shelves of Thigpen Library. There were several folks stalking the Golden Tickets hidden inside the books first thing in the morning. You had to pay close attention to the clues and the talented group of winners did so pretty quickly. Congrats to these crafty hunters:

Kristen Foster
Fran Henslee
Teresa Corlew
Judy Schuelke
Scott Hilgadiack
Lisa Borre
Lenore Maurer

Gabriel Marquez

There are still two more riddles to be solved...numbers three and ten on the list sent out on Monday. 

The Golden Tickets were traded in for prizes, and so you'll see a few more Vol State hats, t-shirts and bags around campus this week. Look for more events coming soon. And be sure to keep in mind the bigger purpose to all of this: our core values help us define what we do here at the college.
