Dedicated Parking Services Employees spend Thanksgiving at TU

By Marc Stephan

The 92nd annual Turkey Bowl between rival high schools Calvert Hall and Loyola took place at Johnny Unitas Stadium this Thanksgiving Day, with Calvert Hall coming out on top 34 – 17. In recent years the game was held at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, but since the Ravens had a home game this Thanksgiving Towson University was chosen to host the televised event.

In keeping with the university’s tradition of providing great service to internal and external customers, several Parking & Transportation Services employees, including Operations Supervisor Richard Herbert (pictured), volunteered to take time out of their Thanksgiving holiday to work the Turkey Bowl event. Richard and his colleagues directed traffic during the event, helping to ensure a safe and smooth process for fans traveling to the game.

The Turkey Bowl has been an important tradition in Baltimore for a long time,” notes Richard.  “When I found out that Towson was going to be hosting the game this year, I was happy to help out.”

Richard Herbert was among the parking employees who worked at the Thanksgiving Day Turkey Bowl.

The Turkey Bowl is one of more than 1,000 events handled each year by Parking & Transportation Services employees who bear wind, cold, heat, snow and rain to ensure that campus visitors get to events smoothly. Next time you see a Parking & Transportation Services employee manning an event, make sure to give them a pat on the back!
