As we prepare to enjoy some time away from work next week for the Thanksgiving campus closure starting on Wednesday, 11/23/22, the Payroll Team has a reminder about your timesheets for the 12/9/22 pay date (for the pay period of 11/14-11/27/22). We don’t want the due dates to sneak up on you post-break!
While timesheets are still due by Monday, 11/28/22, many employees (students, especially!) are in the habit of submitting them at the end of the pay period. Since we will all be out on Friday, 11/25/22, you may want to submit your timesheet by Tuesday, 11/22/22 (or sooner if you’re out all week).
Please take whatever steps are necessary to ensure that the most accurate version of your timesheet is submitted by Monday, 11/28/22.
And, supervisors, if you’re out for any additional time around this shutdown, please ensure you have a backup approver in place to review and approve timesheets by the deadline of Tuesday, 11/29/22. More information on setting up a backup approver can be found here.
The Grand Rapids Community College men’s basketball team stayed perfect on the year, improving to 5-0 after overcoming an eight-point halftime deficit to defeat Schoolcraft College 91-82 on Wednesday.
Bashir Neely, a freshman graduate of Grand Haven High School, led GRCC with a game-high 18 points.
Jordan Houser scored 11 points in his starting debut.
“We put together an incredible team effort tonight for a comeback win on the road,” head coach Joe Fox said. “I’m impressed with the mental focus the team showed. Jordan Houser played great in his first start, and Bashir Neely played with great energy. A lot of guys had great individual efforts. Rico Wade hit a big shot late, and Myron Brewer hit a three with 1:30 left to put us up seven. Chris Coleman made some plays down the stretch as well. I am looking forward to seeing the guys hit the road on Friday”.
Brockton Kohler and Danyel Bibbs each chipped in with 14 points.
The team hits the road again for its next game at Harper College in Illinois on Nov. 18. Tip-off scheduled for 5:30 p.m.
The newest players for the Grand Rapids Community College softball team have extensive experience with travel teams, creating a solid foundation for the season ahead, coach Chuck White said.
White celebrated the signings of five players, building a program that did not field a team in 2022.
“This class was my first, and will be a huge catalyst in keeping the program turning in a great direction, White said. “As far as the upcoming season goes, I will have a great group of hardworking student-athletes who set a positive culture. We’re looking to be capable of being competitive from day one.”
New players are:
Macey Springer, who pitches and plays second base. She is from River Valley High School in Three Oaks. She played on the Lakeshore Pirates travel team, and was named to an All-State team last year.
Maddie Miller, who plays catcher and shortstop. She attends Coopersville High School and played on a travel team with the Blaze organization.
Joslyn Vander Hart, who plays second base and third base. She attends Grandville High School and played for the Diamonds travel team.
