Several MC staff recognized for service

Sept. 2, 2003

More than 15 Maryville College employees were recognized during the College's annual Staff Recognition Luncheon. Held Aug. 8 in the dining room of Green Meadow Country Club, the luncheon and ceremony was attended by more than 100 employees and administrators.

Jennifer Hunt, director of Human Resources, read remarks from MC president, Dr. Gerald W. Gibson, who was unable to attend.

" ... I do want to make sure, through Jennifer Hunt, to express my deep and abiding gratitude for the work that you do through the year," Hunt read. "I take pride in the quality and commitment of the Maryville College staff, and am keenly aware that the kind of progress that the College is making traces directly to the kind of work that all of you do every day. Thank you for that."

Following the noon meal, each vice president introduced the new staff members working in his division. Staff Council Chairperson Leigh Sterling introduced those employees starting, completing and serving terms on Staff Council, and she recognized three employees, Andy McCall, Joe Everett and Kay Pritchett, who had been presented awards at Commencement 2003 for outstanding service during the 2002-2003 academic year.

Hunt presented pins, certificates and plaques to those who had reached milestone years of service as of Aug. 31, 2003.
