The University took the time this afternoon to pay tribute to its employees, and the event was a huge success.
Over 100 people turned out for this year’s SMU Employee Recognition Awards Ceremony which was held in the McNally Theatre Auditorium. The event was organized by the Department of Human Resources.
"Congratulations and I thank all of you for your continued contributions and achievements," said Dr. J. Colin Dodds, President of Saint Mary’s as the room filled with applause.
"Your commitment, support and leadership make all the difference to today’s Saint Mary’s," he added.
Chuck Bridges, Vice President (Assoc.) of External Affairs was the emcee for the special event. Those who presented employees with their awards included Dr. J. Colin Dodds, President, Dr. Terry Murphy, Vice President (Academic and Research), Gabrielle Morrison, Vice President of Administration, Larry Corrigan, Vice President of Finance, and Kim Squires, Director of Human Resources.
Faculty and staff with 10 years of service to SMU were presented with a 10K white gold pin. At 25 years of service, recipients were presented with either a limited edition lithograph of the Loyola Tree by Leighton Davis (former Curator of the University’s Art Gallery) or a Saint Mary’s gold wrist watch. Those who have given 25 years of service were given a 10K yellow gold lapel pin with ruby insert. Those honoured for 15 years affiliation were presented a framed parchment in appreciation of their contributions to the University.
