Homewood Hosts Recognition Reception

Employees from across a variety of disciplines and departments gathered in Homewood's Glass Pavilion on June 14 to receive praise for reaching milestone anniversaries of five, 10 and 15 years of service and to pick up their chosen customized service awards.

Staff from Academic and Cultural Centers, JHPIEGO, Peabody Institute, University Administration and the schools of Arts and Sciences, Business, Education and Engineering attended the Homewood event, the largest such reception held each year.

Those present included University Administration telecommunications staff; Peabody operations staff; employees of Arts and Sciences' Biology Department; and staff of the Krieger Mind/Brain Institute, one of the university's academic centers.

Of the more than 300 staff members recognized, 51 have been with the university for 15 years, 95 for 10 years and 219 for five years.

After brief presentations from Charlene Hayes, vice president for human resources, and James McGill, senior vice president for finance and administration, feted staff took home awards ranging from binoculars and duffel bags to watches and bracelets.

The option of choosing customized awards is a new element of the recognition program, which is organized by the Office of Faculty, Staff and Retiree Programs.
