Six 50-Year Employees Honored at 2018 Service Awards Ceremony

0

Earlier this March, the Service Awards celebration for employees marking 25 years or more of service to the University was held. More than 170 of the honorees celebrating a milestone from 2017 filled the Student Activities Center Ballroom A with joy and conversation as they reconnected with colleagues and shared memories of their years at Stony Brook.

For the first time in its 20-plus year history, the Service Awards recognized six honorees who were celebrating more than 50 years of service, the most ever honored in one year: Fu-Pen Chiang, Mechanical Engineering; Alfred Goldhaber, Physics and Astronomy; Erlend Graf, Physics and Astronomy; Craig Lehmann, School of Health Technology and Management; Barry McCoy, CN Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics; and K. Daniel O’Leary, Psychology.

Stony Brook University President Samuel L. Stanley Jr. expressed his gratitude at the devotion, talents and contributions of everyone who helped shape Stony Brook throughout its 60-year history. “In September 1957, we opened in Oyster Bay as a small teachers college with only 148 students — who were mostly from Long Island. Today, we are educating more than 25,000 students from more than 100 countries, offering more than 200 academic programs. You’ve all been part of this amazing journey. Every day that you’re on the job, you’re part of our history and our future. So, be proud of yourselves and your accomplishments — I know I am,” he said.

He then asked the 25-, 30- and 35-year honorees to stand first so they could be recognized and applauded for their service. Then he individually recognized the senior honorees who were in attendance, praising their 40-, 45- and 50-years of service. Each senior honoree was introduced and brought up to the podium to receive his award.

A total of 350 people achieved recognized levels of service in 2017: 134 reached 25 years, 132 reached 30 years, 58 reached 35 years, 15 reached 40 years, four celebrated 45 years, and six are at 50 years and still going strong. In addition to special Tiffany gifts, attendees each received pins displaying their years of service.
