Huge Crowd for Chili and Dessert Cook-off

Nearly 200 LITS employees attended the festivities, held in the parking lot of 1762, including members of the University Library staff. The food included 19 chilies and 14 desserts, lovingly prepared by staff members. There were also hotdogs, corn on the cob, various snacks and drinks.

Even though this is a tradition carried over from NetCom, LITS Business and Administration (formerly IT F&A) has taken on responsibility for hosting this event.

Big thanks to Linda Richardson and Sebreana Echols (both of LITS Business and Administration), who co-hosted the event. Other helpers included: Susan Henschen (R-WIT), Celeste Hermida (LITS Business and Administration), Camille Hyatt (LITS Business and Administration), Nydia Charles Huggins (LITS Business and Administration), Debbie Gray (LITS Business and Administration), Lamar Kelly (Enterprise Services), LaKysha Mack (LITS Business and Administration), Khadijah Muhammad (LITS Business and Administration), and Linda Nodine (LITS Business and Administration), as well as a host of staff who stepped up “as needed” (also known as being in the wrong place at the wrong time!)

Really, thank you to everyone for a great event, and to you Wade for all you did and Norman for the great posters.
