Ninth Annual Long Term Service Reception

On May 1, faculty, students and staff gathered in the TC cafeteria to congratulate 29 of their colleagues who reached a milestone of 15, 20, 30 and 35 years of full-time continuous service at the College.

President Arthur Levine welcomed the awardees by saying, "You are the models that have sustained the College and the heart and soul of the institution." He added that, "If I counted your years of service it would add up to 715--that is extraordinary." Levine mentioned Carrol Grady, who has been with the College for 35 years. He smiled and said, "Carrol has been at TC through four presidents and started working ten years before I was born."

Don Dean, Director of Personnel Services, and Sarah Prescott Phillips, Employment Administrator in Personnel Services, coordinated the presentation of the awards.

Among some of the supervisors presenting the awards to their employees were Dean Karen Zumwalt, Associate Dean William Baldwin, Fred Schnur, Vice President for Finance and Administration, Vincent Del Bagno, Director of Facilities, Jane Franck, Director of the Library, and Clifford Hill, the Chair of the Department of International and Transcultural Studies.
