Staff Fest 2017 was a big hit with Emory staff as the sunny weather and improved food options yielded increased attendance for the annual event.

Held in the Quad, the event featured barbecue catered by Jim ‘N Nick’s BBQ Restaurant, as well as a variety of activities including volleyball and corn hole tournaments, a climbing wall, caricature artists, ice cream and popcorn vendors, and DJ-led dancing.

The LITS line dancers were back, performing another well-choreographed dance routine despite the high temperatures and blinding white dance floor. “I will never wear white again – especially with the white dance floor,” said Dawn Francis-Chewning. “But SO MUCH FUN! I love dancing with this crew.”

Others who raced were Kat Boushell, Erika Buchholz, Folé Gailor, Jay Flanagan, Kirsten Wehner, Michelle Wilson, Khalid Sharif, Raj Garrepally, Sandra Harrison, Susan Henschen, Tracy Preyer, Bev Turner, and Veta Williamson.
