This year the Union’s student employees have been on a magical adventure as they competed for the ultimate prize of the Union Cup. At the culminating event, our End of Term Feast, the Union Cup was awarded to the house that has garnered the most gems with their excellent service to all. While all houses teetered on greatness, only one house came out on top. Those golden snitches hidden in the Union at the end of the semester also helped quite a bit as well. In third place was Gryffindor with 285.  In second place with 305 was Hufflepuff.

Zach Smathers was recently honored at the Carolina Union End of Term Feast as the 2014 Employee of the Semester. Throughout this semester, Zach has succeeded beyond staff expectations in his new role as Operations Scheduling Manager. He has worked diligently to streamline and improve the scheduling process in the department, and has proven very reliable in his role when sudden scheduling needs have arisen. Zach is also an extremely reliable and dedicated Operations Supervisor and takes a vested interest in the involvement and development of the department, particularly through CUEF.
