Wear a (Cincinnati State) mask
Starting this week, every Cincinnati State employee will be able to cover your face with a College-branded mask-- an ideal accessory when on campus, or when out and about in other vicinities where mask requirements are in effect.
VP of Workforce Development Amy Waldbillig, who also supervises marketing and enrollment activities, said every full-time employee will receive two masks, and each part-time employees will get one mask.
The masks are being distributed this week to campus offices.
"We wanted to provide our employees with face coverings to help keep everyone safe, and at the same time provide a mask that looks professional and helps promote the College," Waldbillig said.
Jason Caudill, program chair for Graphic Design, served as design consultant for the project.
Jason said, "The Marketing Team wanted a design that would be appealing to all, so those wearing the mask would feel safe, and also feel proud of their college."
"Also, we wanted the logo to be visible from a distance when the wearer is representing the College."
In addition to masks, the College's branded face coverings will include a supply of gaiters-- a neck covering that can be pulled up to protect the nose and mouth.
The CState gaiters are green with a repeated College logo in white.
The gaiters are expected to be delivered in late July, and then will be distributed to 2020 graduates, College employees, and others.
