2011 Employee Recognition Dinner

Human Resources recently hosted the 39th annual Employee Service Recognition and Retirement Dinner at the Troy Hilton Garden Inn. Employees who have completed service in five-year increments were honored, as well as employees who retired during the last fiscal year.

“Indeed, we should thank all of our employees, in every office, in every division, for their patience, tolerance, good humor, and general willingness to help out those college students who are still a little wet behind the ears,” said President Jackson in her remarks. “Certainly, I cannot walk around this campus without feeling that creativity, excitement, and confidence every step of the way. And it is the people in this room tonight who pour that life into our grounds, our buildings, our events, even our paperwork! I feel privileged to enjoy your work every single day, and thank you heartily for the remarkable spirit you lend this institute.”

“This annual event is a wonderful Rensselaer tradition and a time to reflect on the contributions and commitments that all of you have made during your career at Rensselaer,” said Curtis Powell, vice president for human resources. “Rensselaer continues to rank among the top 50 universities in our nation, and is recognized as one the best employers in the Capital Region. Rensselaer employees continue to be the best in what they do and we are here this evening to recognize those employees.”

Following is a list of this year’s honorees. Be sure to congratulate them when you see them!
