The MSU Retirement and Service Recognition Award recognizes support staff employees celebrating a 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, or 50th work anniversary or a retirement falling between July 1, 2021, and December 31, 2021. This shortened date range is to support a transition from recognizing employees based on the fiscal year to the calendar year. Next year, we will recognize employee years of service between January 1 and December 31, 2022. This year, we recognize over 450 employees celebrating long-term work anniversaries and retirements.
While we are not able to hold an in-person celebration this year, we are no less thankful for our employees’ dedicated service to MSU. We are incredibly disappointed that we cannot celebrate our employees at an in-person event for their talent, loyalty, and contributions to MSU. Our university’s development and growth have been, in large part, due to the contributions made by staff members who have chosen to remain in the service of the university.
President Samuel L. Stanley Jr., M.D. acknowledged awardees and expressed his gratitude:
“Service and Retirement Award recipients, congratulations on this milestone in your career or retirement from MSU. In addition to the great work you do every day, I am grateful for your dedication and flexibility over the past couple of challenging years. Together, we have maintained the university’s momentum across our key missions of education, research and outreach — a great accomplishment. I am proud to be your colleague. Thank you for all you do for MSU.”
Thank you to these employees for their years of dedicated service to MSU! If you recognize any names from the program, we encourage you to reach out to these individuals and offer your congratulations.
