By all accounts, it was a great time. The School of Allied Health Professions hosted a holiday party for faculty and staff at 1316 Jones Street on Friday, January 17, 2014, and despite the cold weather we had a good turnout. The venue was nice, the food was super, and the attendees looked smashing! See for yourself…
This slideshow highlights most of the folks who made it. If you’re in one of the photos and would like a high res copy, just ask Fran.
I’ve had a few requests for the slideshow I made for the SAHP holiday party, so here you go. These are photos I’d taken of our faculty and staff throughout 2013 at various events. If you’re in the school, you’re bound to be in there. The music isn’t included, as I used a playlist I made on Spotify, but you could always look me up Spotify (Fran Higgins) and listen to the HolidayParty playlist while you watch. Enjoy!
Our director of Finance and Administration, Pat O’Neil, graduated from UNO on December 21, 2014 with her master’s degree in public administration. She took advantage of the tuition remission program offered by UNMC.
“The three-and-half years it took flew by,” Pat said, ”and the best part was interacting with my amazingly diverse classmates.”
Congratulations on your achievement, Pat!
