Campus Champion

Kerry Mincher likes to juggle event planning and her schedule is full this summer. When it comes to the details, the procurement card administrator says simply: “Bring it on.” She’s coordinating a wide range of particulars for the J.P. Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge, which takes place Tuesday, June 19, in Syracuse. She’s also serving as chair of the CSEA picnic on Friday, July 13. A record 120 participants will head to the Challenge and more than 200 employees and their families will attend the picnic in Homer. Sandwiched between both events, she’ll celebrate her 20th high school reunion, not surprisingly as chair of its committee.
