Employee Family and Friends Appreciation Days Grand Prize Winner Announced
The grand prize winner of HR’s Employee Family and Friends Appreciation Days contest was crowned during a time out in the second half of the Kent vs. Akron basketball game.
The contestants, John Gape and Jared Englert – sons of KSU staffers Adda Gape and Michael Englert – were tasked with donning tropical-themed clothing at one end of the court before racing to the other end, where they had to sink a shot.
Adda’s son John edged out his competitor and gave his mother a vacation getaway valued at $1,500. For his efforts, Jared snagged an Apple iPad as a consolation prize for his father Michael.
“We appreciate the opportunity, the iPad and the efforts of Human Resources to make KSU a great place to work,” said Englert.
The contest was sponsored by Klaben Auto Stores and T-Mobile. In case you missed it, the Flashes edged out the Zips in a 68 – 65 nail biter.
