The “Spice Girls” include facilities operations staff, from left, Maria Myers, Tonya Land, Ami Willett, Sandy Simmons-Gamble and Penny Roberts.

The drizzly weather didn’t put a damper on yesterday’s Fall Staff Appreciation Day at the Puck. Staff members came out and painted pumpkins, toasted marshmallows at a s’mores station and danced. Employees voted for their favorite costume and the “Spice Girls” won first place. Visit the Missouri S&T Staff Council Facebook page to see more photos.

The following staff members won Thanksgiving Day prize baskets.

  • Kimber Crull, communications specialist in mechanical and aerospace engineering
  • Cordell Dukes, system support analyst
