Merrick Inc. Honors MAES with Shining Star Award

October 10, 2014

The MAES staff is proud to accept the Shining Star Award and looks forward to continuing to work with Merrick and the U of M crew in the future.

Since July 1994, the University of Minnesota has hired support staff for its greenhouses through Merrick Inc. The crew works in the University’s Plant Growth Facilities within the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences. These facilities include two acres of greenhouses, classrooms and research labs. The crew’s responsibilities include washing plant containers, sweeping, cleaning classroom tables and other projects as assigned. Every day they arrive for their three hour shift with a smile on their face and eager to work. Over the last 20 years, they have been instrumental in keeping the facilities clean and running efficiently.
