Beach Day BBQ Big Hit for Virginia College Online Programs
Posted: Tuesday, August 24, 2010
It was hot and the day was full of surprises. Employees of Virginia College online programs in Tampa were having a beach party and someone had to feed them. So when hamburger chef and General Manager Glenn Robinson started singing along with the Beach Boys, special guest Stan Banks (ECA's EVP and COO) showed skills that make him a likely replacement for Simon Cowell on American Idol.
His advice to Glenn? "Keep your day job."
Glenn didn't appear too wounded, and kept the grill busy enough to feed hamburgers and hot dogs to an army of 175 hungry employees. As the sun got hotter and the games more intense, snow cones were slurped to stay cool. A favorite game was Pie-in-the Face Productivity in which high performers were allowed to "pie" a Director or Manager.
The dunk tank, always a favorite, showcased amazing talent. Jeff Herle, SVP of Admissions, surprised everyone with his backstroke. He's an obvious favorite for the 2012 Olympics! There was music in the air and the vibe was great. Sonya Hubbard, VP of Operations, gave a clear indication that she is a contender should CEO Tom Moore approve "Dancing with the ECA Stars" in 2011!
Everyone is looking forward to the next Beach Day BBQ!
