Month Flat Week Day

Plan to Plan T.A.G.S. a Public Servant

Monday, December 12, 2016 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Every Week until December 16, 2016

The Concordia College Alabama Honors Program will be hosting a series of events to show appreciation for Selma/Dallas County public servants. 

The CCA Honors Program students have created this initiative to help build bridges and promote better relations between the community and those working in public service occupations (i.e. firefighters, sheriffs, judges, police offers, military officials, elected officials, etc.). Each Monday during the fall 2016 semester, the Honors Program will invite a public servant to speak and answer questions so that the community may have a better understanding and appreciation for the work that they do. The acronym T.A.G.S. stands for Teamwork, Appreciation, Growth, and Synergy, all of which CCA hopes to promote through this series.

To show further appreciation, the Honors Program will “TAG” a public servant’s break room/lounge at work with doughnuts, coffee, orange juice and fruit as a token of appreciation for service to the community.  In addition, a Concordia College Alabama T.A.G.S. gift bag will be given to the public servant.

The events will be held every Monday in CCA’s Wright auditorium from 12:00-1:00 p.m. The entire Selma/Dallas County community is invited and encouraged to attend. The events are free and lunch will be served.
