Employee Recognition Luncheon

During this event, we honor the service accomplishments of employees who have recently retired, will be retiring soon, who have hit a five year service benchmark and of course special recognition to our longest continuing service employees (all with 40 or more years of service). Honorees are recognized at a luncheon and given an appreciation gift.

  2. Suggestions and/or implementation of time or cost saving changes;
  3. Dedication, resourcefulness, creativity and/or initiative on a project or activity;
  4. Significant effort above what a position requires. (To reinforce the need for continual creativity, initiative and positive change both successes and non-successes should be recognized). Final selection criteria is at the discretion of the Responsibility Center Head.

Certificates and reward selections are available college-wide with the reward from the Bookstore not exceed the amount of $50 dollars. Prizes and Certificates of Achievement will be arranged by Human Resources.
