Longtime Employees Honored As Staff Celebrations Begin

A record number of Johns Hopkins staff gathered on June 5 with their guests to mark 20 or more years of service and celebrate their retirements at the annual recognition dinner organized by the Office of Faculty, Staff and Retiree Programs.

President William R. Brody remarked on the high level of community spirit that exists among staff and then handed out the service awards to the recipients, who were celebrating 20 or more years, in increments of five years, all the way up to 60 years of service. Custom-designed watches, luggage and stained glass lamps topped the list of awards requested from among the new choices made available to staff this year.

Of the 375 staff and guests who attended the dinner, there were six with 35 years of service to the university, 23 with 30 years, 37 with 25 years and 72 celebrating 20 years, plus 43 new retirees and six marking more than 41 years — all in all, representing more than 8,000 years of collective service.
