Upcoming Events Honor Staff With Milestone Anniversaries at JHU

By John Black
Faculty, Staff and Retiree Programs

The Office of Faculty, Staff and Retiree Programs has announced this year's Staff Recognition Program. Johns Hopkins University staff who are celebrating milestone anniversaries or are retiring may choose from a variety of service awards to be presented at the annual series of recognition events in June. Orders for the awards must be placed — by phone, mail or online — by this Friday, April 10.

Eligible to be recognized are full- and part-time staff with a minimum of five years of continuous service with the university who have completed five, 10, 15, 20 or more years of service, in increments of five years, and whose service anniversary falls between July 11, 2008, and July 10, 2009. For a list of 2009 staff honorees and information about eligibility guidelines and award ordering, go to: and click on Staff Recognition.

Staff who believe they are eligible for recognition this year but are not listed or have not received award ordering instructions should contact Sondra Ponzi, FSRP program coordinator, at or 410-516-0338.

Staff retiring before July 10, 2009, must notify FSRP by April 15 to be included. Retiring staff with 25 or more years of service will receive instructions in late April for selecting and ordering a service award.
