We Give Thanks

Custodian Leonid Kurochka was among 42 Gordon employees recognized for five to fifteen years of service at a reception in the Ken Olsen Science Center. The tradition of honoring long-term employees with a gift and personal words of appreciation goes back over 35 years. Recently, the number of faculty and staff reaching milestone anniversaries has increased to the point where separate celebrations are now scheduled for employees celebrating 20 to 45 years of service.

"This is a very special occasion for our community," said Nancy Anderson, director of human resources who organizes the annual event. "It brings faculty and staff together to both publically recognize our colleagues and to remind us of the value we all bring to Gordon. Sharing personal stories about the unique interests, family, or skills of these individuals helps builds connections with one another and strengthens our community ties."
