Employees Recognized for Milestone Service Years
Faculty and staff from St. John Fisher College gathered to celebrate milestone years of service during the annual Service Awards Ceremony. Twelve members of the campus community marked more than 20 years of service at Fisher, while more than 75 faculty and staff celebrated milestone years of five, 10, and 15 years. Together, the 112 employees recognized during the ceremony have given 1,505 years of service to the College.
The awards ceremony, held on Thursday, Nov. 3, featured remarks from President Gerard Rooney, who celebrated 20 years of service alongside his colleagues. Another notable milestone belongs to Dr. Donald Muench, professor of mathematics, who celebrates 50 years of service. In honor of his half-century at Fisher, College News dug up this 2011 article from the archives, which includes a question-and-answer with Muench, who is also a member of the Pioneer Class.
