Hourly and Classified Employees
"The College of William and Mary Hourly and Classified Employees Association (HACE) was established in the summer of 1986. The principal founders envisioned an organization through which hourly and classified employees could work toward common objectives by encouraging and supporting each other in their efforts to enhance their professional growth and development. HACE is the only organization on campus to collectively represent every employee who is not a faculty or student member. Your attendance at meetings helps to ensure a fellowship that produces valuable and rewarding experiences. Membership is open to all hourly and classified employees of The College of William and Mary. Annual dues of $7.00 are payable in January and are not prorated. Only paid members are eligible to vote in HACE business meetings. A Board of Directors, consisting of officers elected annually from the general membership and committee chairpersons, govern the association."
Employee Appreciation Luncheon
William & Mary celebrated it's first “classified employee recognition luncheon and award program” on June 30, 1976 in the Great Hall of the Wren Building. . It recognized employees who had retired the previous year as well as those honored with more than 25 years of service. See attached image of article from July 8, 1976 issue of the W&M News. This luncheon in the Great Hall continued until the 1980s.
By the time George Healy hosted the annual luncheon in June 1985 when he was acting president, the event was recognizing employees with 20 years of service and retirees.
The first outdoor picnic was on August 23, 1988 and was hosted by president Paul R. Verkuil and his wife.
