The luncheon honors over 100 university employees who have achieved years of service in increments of ten, fifteen, twenty, twenty-five, thirty, thirty-five and forty years of service, as well as those who have recently retired. The winners of the Outstanding Staff Employee of the Year, Wildcat Spirit Award, Safety Award, Customer Service Award, Making a Difference Award, Emerging Leader Award, and Outstanding MPP are announced at the ceremony, where the recipients are honored for their contributions to our campus and community.
