CEDAR HILL, Texas – Northwood Texas celebrated with faculty and staff awarding the Knight to Knight Award to well deserving knights during Incubator Day.

The Knight to Knight Spotlight Award debuted at the welcome back lunch this fall semester.  Faculty and staff were given the opportunity to anonymously recommend a fellow co-worker who went above and beyond to assist a fellow knight in the workplace.  The end of the fall semester recipients included Christi Anguiano, Wilber Batty, Celeste Lindell, Patty Shaw, Alex Von Hassler and Roy Wilson.

Employees celebrated after Incubator Day with a holiday party. Festivities included Texas line dancing, Dance Central Battle and a performance by Comedian Garland Owensby. Scrumptious food on hand included a mashed potato martini bar, decorate your own cupcake bar, carving stations as well as a pizza station featuring many toppings including the mouthwatering Texas campus bacon pizza which is loved by all Knights.
