Jerry Day

Jerry Day (Union Club Hotel): Housing and Food Services wants to give a Thumbs Up to the most recent winner of the HFS ACTS award. Jerry Day received the award for being "Clear in Our Purpose and Vision." As the manager of the Union Club Hotel, Jerry works tirelessly to more fully integrate the hotel into the HTM curriculum. He and his key staff are presenters at the lecture portion of an HTM course, and students work in the hotel to gain experience. This hands-on collaboration is rare in a university setting and will be beneficial as students compete for jobs in the hotel industry. Jerry was a key force in pulling the program together, working with HTM head Rich Ghiselli and professors Li Miao and Annmarie Nicely to review course and lab content. -- Housing and Food Services
