The 287 employees recognized at this year’s employee service awards banquets have collectively served Dartmouth for 5,285 years, said Scot Bemis, chief human resources officer.
Bemis, who served as host of the events, said he was pleased to celebrate the valuable work of staffers who, he said, “make a significant impact at all levels.”
“I would like to take this opportunity to pause and celebrate your time here at Dartmouth College, it deserves a round of applause,” he said in welcoming remarks to employees.
At a Dec. 13 luncheon and dinner at the Class of 1953 Commons, the College honored staff marking employment milestones, beginning with a lunch celebration for the 103 employees who have served for 10 years and the 58 staffers who have served for 15 years. The dinner event celebrated those with 20 years through 45 years of service, in five-year increments.
President Philip J. Hanlon ’77 told the employees that their work is an important part of the College’s success.
“The excellence we achieve at Dartmouth is a team effort, and staff plays a crucial role, along with faculty and students, on this team,” said President Hanlon.
This year’s celebration was different from previous years because the Sheila Culbert Distinguished Employee Award was not presented at the ceremony. Instead the Culbert Award, the College’s highest staff honor, has been incorporated in the newly created Lone Pine Recognition Program, which also establishes 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 in April. Details on the Lone Pine awards are available on the Office of Human Resources website.
