At today’s all-employee meeting and State of the College address (more on that later!), Sara Trunzo was recognized with a “Colleague on a Mission” award. Sponsored by Human Resources, Colleagues on a Mission are nominated by their peers for going above and beyond the call of duty. And few people manifest the mission of the College in their work quite like Sara Trunzo. Congratulations, friend! Well deserved. From her award citation today:
Sara knows better than anyone that successful programs are about successful relationships. In her own modest way, she has been the bridge between Unity College and a great many external organizations focused on food security, food justice, and sustainable agriculture. She’s worked her tail off to firmly establish campus and community gardens, and has been the primary administrative support to the hunger relief ag. project Veggies For All — now based at Unity College. You can’t do food work in Waldo County without eventually teaming up with Sara Trunzo. We’re lucky she’s made Unity her home and made us her colleagues.
