The You FIRST program at Baylor seeks to emphasize the value of employees across all mission areas by promoting morale through opportunities that help create a positive work environment for everyone. There are several upcoming You FIRST activities.
The You FIRST Program will host a “Night of 1000 Stars” Celebration on Wednesday, Jan. 28, from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the Bayou City Event Center, 9401 Knight Road, Houston, TX 77045.
BCM faculty and staff are invited to attend a casino night with great food, music and prizes and the opportunity to interact with your own team members and meet new colleagues in other areas of the college. Unfortunately, guests cannot be accommodated for this event.
