New Awards, Dates Announced for Staff Recognition
By John Black
Faculty, Staff and Retiree
If a traditional key chain or paperweight isn't quite
what you'd like to receive to mark your milestone service
anniversary, the Office of
Faculty, Staff and Retiree Programs has good news about
this year's staff recognition program, which starts in
New this year: Those being recognized for five, 10, 15
and 20 years of service — and, in increments of five
years, all the way up to 60 years — will now be able
to choose from a variety of service awards. The available
gifts, from MTM Recognition, a leading designer and
manufacturer of custom crafted jewelry and recognition
awards, range from gym bags and Swiss army knives to
earrings and custom designed jewelry, all with the official
Johns Hopkins seal, along with the standard clocks and
watches. A preview of possible awards is available at
Eligible staff will receive ordering instructions at
home by early April; orders can be placed directly by
phone, fax, mail or online. Those being recognized have
until April 13 to order; if that deadline is not met, a
lapel pin will be provided.
The awards will be presented at the series of events
organized by FSRP, on behalf of Johns Hopkins, to honor
staff for their hard work and dedication.
Staff members who have served the university for five,
10 or 15 years and whose service anniversary falls between
July 11, 2006, and July 10, 2007, inclusive, will be
presented with their self-chosen awards at one of the
following receptions: Bloomberg School of Public Health, on
Wednesday, June 6, from 3 to 4:30 p.m. in Feinstone Hall;
School of Nursing, on Tuesday, June 12, from 3 to 4:30 p.m.
in the Carpenter Room; and Homewood, which includes
University Administration, JHPIEGO and Peabody, on
Thursday, June 14, from 3 to 4:30 p.m. in the Glass
Pavilion. Honorees also will enjoy a buffet of hors
d'oeuvres and desserts.
Staff at the School of Medicine, JHU Press and SAIS
will be notified once those events are scheduled.
The annual recognition and retiree dinner, which
honors staff who are retiring or celebrating anniversaries
of 20 years or more, in increments of five years, and whose
anniversary falls between the dates above, is scheduled for
Tuesday, June 5, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Ralph S. O'Connor
Recreation Center on the Homewood campus. Staff with more
than 40 years of service also will be invited to the
dinner. Retiring staff with 25 or more years of service can
receive either a captain's chair or engraved plaque.
Eligible retirees must notify FSRP by April 15 of their
