Virtual CBU Graduation

Virtual CBU Graduation

By: Stacey Thousand – Sr. Learning and Development Specialist

In September we held our first Colony Brands University Virtual Graduation.   Although the event was a bit different than past years, we celebrated the same milestones.  Bob Erb opened the event recognizing the graduates for their effort and time commitment needed to achieve a degree.

This year is a special year for CBU Graduation as it marks our 25th Colony Brands University Graduation.  Did you know that Colony Brands University use to be named the University of Swiss Colony?  Since the beginning of this great graduation tradition, we have awarded degrees to over 2,300 graduates.  It’s hard to believe but two individuals from that very first graduating class are still working alongside us.  They are Tim Wolff and Ann Hunter.

At this year’s graduation, we recognized a total of almost 150 employees who earned a Colony Brands University degree for classes completed through the end of 2019.

We would like to take this opportunity one more time to congratulate everyone who committed their time and effort to earning a CBU degree.  We encourage everyone to continue to take advantage of the learning experiences we offer here and invite your peers, teams and even your leaders to do the same.

Feel free to watch this year’s graduation here: https://youtu.be/Wh1XHfINc1Y

We look forward to offering more great learning opportunities as we move into 2021.

 

 

 

Congratulations to the following employees!
