As with the Administrative Services website, we will continue to add new features to the Facilities Management web page.

 

FacilitiesWayne Espinola, Administrative Services Webmaster, continues to work with each of the divisions and departments on the development of their new websites.

The Faculty & Staff Campaign 2011-12 is in full swing and to create some added excitement, a "Herd of Bulls Challenge" has been issued to USF's leadership team.

This year's event which features a "mechanical bull" will take place on April 16th at 10:30 outside the Marshall Student Center. Be sure to mark your calendars – you won't want to miss out on all the fun! For more information, read this article posted on Inside USF.

 

WALKING IN SUPPORT OF BREAST CANCER AWARENESS & PREVENTION

WayneWayne Wilcox, Custodial Superintendent, Physical Plant, is one
of the dedicated men walking a mile in heels and a dress in Florida Hospital's annual "Heroes 'N Heels Walk" on March 24th. At last year's walk, Wayne won "best dress."

 

This worthy cause assists Tampa Bay area women who can't afford to receive screenings and treatment for breast cancer. For every $100.00 raised, a mammogram is provided to a patient who otherwise wouldn't be able to receive one.

 

We applaud Wayne for his community service and support of breast cancer awareness and prevention. If you'd like to support Wayne in this walk, you can donate using this form or online at this website. The walk begins at 8:30 a.m. at the LifeHope Medical Offices building at Florida Hospital (formerly University Community Hospital) on Fletcher Avenue.

 

Come on out and cheer on Wayne!
