Staff Senate’s holiday ornaments to be sold at Mountain Heritage Day

The Western Carolina University Staff Senate will be selling newly redesigned WCU holiday ornaments and collecting donations during the 43rd annual Mountain Heritage Day on Saturday, Sept. 30, with all proceeds and donations to benefit the Staff Senate Scholarship Fund.

The Staff Senate Scholarship supports currently enrolled or accepted incoming students who are children and relatives of SHRA and EHRA non-faculty employees. Award preference is given to the children and dependents of WCU employees, including those of the university’s contractual employees. However, grandchildren, nieces and nephews of staff are encouraged to apply as well. The application deadline is Feb. 1 of each year.

“While you’re at Mountain Heritage Day, stop by Booth 81 and meet staff senators, purchase an ornament or make a donation,” said Alison Joseph, a staff senator and analyst with WCU’s Office of Institutional Planning and Effectiveness.
