Dr. Joe DiPietro enjoyed a TRIBUTE Employee Appreciation pizza party event before the Mocs basketball game against Wofford at the McKenzie Arena.
TRIBUTE events are a way “to thank faculty and staff for the work they do in our classrooms, laboratories, offices, and communities throughout the state. For me, they also are a welcome opportunity to meet and get to know more of our employees,” DiPietro said.
Employees each received a free ticket to the game. Some opted to bring the entire family and enjoy the game, where door prize drawings were announced during the event.
Giveaways included one package for two tickets to the 2011 Southern Conference Basketball Tournament, held at the McKenzie Arena March 3-7; tickets to the Football Mocs home opener, a $25 gift certificate to Big River Grille, and other UTC merchandise.
