The purpose of this policy is to permit the Board of Trustees to honor its staff, former Board Members, and other nonemployee persons with plaques, pins, token retirement gifts and awards, and other amenities.
The Board wishes to also honor staff, students, citizens, and advisory groups for their contributions with appropriate recognitions and authorizes administrators to purchase meals, refreshments, and/or other amenities to further the interests of the College.
The Board does, hereby, affirm that the expenses incurred as listed above do serve a public purpose. The Board believes that "public purpose" serves for the promotion of education, rapport with the business community, community relations, and the encouragement of nonemployees to serve as volunteers as well as furthering other interest.
The funds shall be made available from the General Fund.
