Midd Commencement Commences!

Welcome to Midd commencement in our department!

Here in the Custodial department we talk about and plan commencement as we are underway and wrap-up this year’s event! It is always on our minds and sometimes it is dreaded by folks. One reason we take this event and time of year seriously is because we have increased work hours at this time. We start working 10 hour days the week before commencement so we may get a start at cleaning and prepping rooms for commencement housing and Reunion weekend. We need to do this so all rooms are cleaned and ready for our parents and Alumni when they return!

Some of the many things we do that may not be realized by folks are:

  • set-up and tear down events
  • iron table covers
  • arrange flowers
  • set chairs
  • bag programs

Everyone that works Midd commencement sports a snazzy navy blue polo. That blue polo is the symbolic nature of our team orientated work and Can-Do attitude in Facilities. We work together to make it happen!(no matter what…the show must go on!)
