Faculty, staff, and non-student wage colleagues,

As we near the end of the spring semester, I want to share my sincere thanks and appreciation for your hard work and dedication to Virginia Tech.

In honor of your many contributions to the university, you are invited to attend the Virginia Tech Employee Appreciation Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, May 18, at Lane Stadium.

In previous years, the university has celebrated Staff Appreciation Day in May for more than 3,500 staff and wage employees. This year – following two years without an in-person event – we are excited to expand this great event and invite all of our nearly 9,000 faculty, staff, and non-student wage employees local to the Blacksburg campus to come together as a community so we can express our appreciation for your hard work and dedication to Virginia Tech. Conversations are underway to explore potential future events at other locations around the commonwealth.

In addition, the Hokie Wellness Health and Benefits Fair, historically held in January, will combine with Employee Appreciation Day event to provide an enriched program for all. The event will provide health and wellness vendors, games, a DJ, hourly walking tours, lunch, and more.

To help us understand how many employees plan to attend, please take a minute to complete this survey by 5 p.m. Friday, April 22. This will help gauge number of attendees for food.

Watch for event updates in the VTx Daily email.

Thank you again for all of your contributions to Virginia Tech.

Go Hokies!

Bryan Garey,
Vice President for Human Resources
