Staff Honored at 41st Annual Recognition Dinner

The Division of Human Resources recently hosted the 41st annual Employee Service Recognition and Retirement Dinner at the 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.

“Rensselaer could not have achieved its renown without you, its employees,” said President Shirley Ann Jackson. “You are the heart of our flourishing community, pumping vital energy throughout our campus, and breathing life into all of our activities, thanks to your manifold contributions, from advancing our research enterprise to administering our finances; from increasing enrollment to developing our workforce; from managing our campus technology to building and maintaining our physical environment; and from ensuring that students feel at home to communicating with those outside our campus doors.”

“This annual event is a wonderful Rensselaer tradition and one of the times that we can formally thank you, our staff, for your tireless service, unwavering commitment, and priceless contributions to Rensselaer,” said Curtis Powell, vice president for human resources. “Today, Rensselaer is recognized as a world-class technological research university with global reach and global impact. Rensselaer continues to rank among the top 50 universities in our nation based on the U.S. News and World Report rankings, and is recognized as one of the best employers in the Capital Region.”

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