A DAY IN THE LIFE

Day in the Life: Peggy Stoltenberg

A typical workday for Peggy Stoltenberg could encompass just about anything.

She sits at the front desk in the Northeast Regional Engagement Center on a busy corner in downtown Sterling. Many people see the CSU sign and walk in to ask a variety of random questions, such as, “How can I get an opossum out of my attic?”

More often, people wander into the Engagement Center because they are new to town looking for resources, connections or education — or they are longtime residents, also looking for resources, connections or education.

“Which is great,” says Stoltenberg, “because THAT is what my work is all about: making connections and building relationships.”

Day in the Life: Adam Redavid

Adam Redavid, assistant manager for the Braiden Dining Center answered, “I’d love to go to Rome, or Tokyo or New Orleans — any city known for amazing food, really — and just spend a week or two immersing myself in the history, culture, and of course the cuisine!”

This response is fitting. Redavid is a State Classified employee in Residential Dining Services where he served as a cook for the past six years — and in July became assistant manager.
