Service Awards Celebrate 245 Employee Milestones

Dartmouth staff members have served a combined total of 4,914 years.

Dartmouth employees were honored for their years of service at a Dec. 12 luncheon and dinner that marked employment milestones of 10 to 45 years.

The 245 employees recognized this year have collectively served Dartmouth for 4,914 years, said Scot Bemis, chief human resources officer.

Bemis, who served as host of the events, said the staff's excellent work ensures that Dartmouth's primary mission—teaching and research—can reach the highest standards.

"In addition to what takes place in the labs and classrooms, it is your contributions that make Dartmouth College a world-class institution.  And for that I want to thank you and have you acknowledge each other," he said.

At a Dec. 12 luncheon and dinner at the Class of 1953 Commons, the College honored staff marking employment milestones, beginning with a lunch celebration for the 51 employees who have served for 10 years and the 69 staffers who have served for 15 years. The dinner event celebrated the 125 staffers with 20 years through 45 years of service, in five-year increments.

Their work is an important part of the College's success, President Philip J. Hanlon '77 told the employees, adding that excellence at Dartmouth is a team effort, and staff plays a crucial role with faculty and students in the institution's success.

In recent years the employee service ceremony has changed, and the Sheila Culbert Distinguished Employee Award is no longer presented at the ceremony. Instead the Culbert Award, the College's highest staff honor, has been incorporated in the Lone Pine Recognition Program, which also established five new awards to honor staff who exemplify Dartmouth's commitment to excellence and core values.

The Lone Pine program awards will be presented at a ceremony on April 29, led by President Hanlon and other senior leaders. Details on the Lone Pine awards are available on the Office of Human Resources website.
