Yale honors 332 long-service staff members
Yale University honored 332 staff members at the annual Long-Service Recognition dinner, held on April 1 in Commons dining hall.
Staff members who were honored had achieved service anniversary milestones of 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, or 50 years within the current fiscal year — with a collective 9,810 years of service among them. Nearly 650 guests, including honorees, guests and supervisors, packed Commons for dinner and a video presentation featuring individual profiles, beginning with 50-year honorees with Roy Capper, Comparative Medicine, and Patricia Slatter, Philosophy.
President Richard Levin, who created the annual event in 1996, described the honorees as “the heart and soul of the University” and expressed his appreciation for their contributions to the University. All guests received a commemorative yearbook and were congratulated by the University officers.
