There is no doubt that all of us at MCCC work hard. There are the faculty who go to class every day and teach their hearts out, and the maintenance crew who brave the cold weather to remove the snow and ice and set up for the numerous activities we have on campus.
Behind the scenes though are those “laborers in the vineyard”; those unheralded individuals who work in the “back cubicles” to ensure that we receive our paychecks every other week; those who inhabit the bowels of some of our buildings to keep our computers and other equipment functioning week in and week out; and those who work directly with our students to advise and council them concerning their courses and any other challenges they may have. These are the “laborers in the vineyard”. Individuals who work behind the scenes, without who this place would be non-existent.
So, to all the “laborers in the vineyard”, I say thank you, obrigado, merci, xie xie, asante, danka, gracias, we appreciate you.
