UVA faculty gather at the 44th Annual Service Awards
Charlottesville's largest employer is honoring some of its longest serving employees. The University of Virginia recognized more than 700 loyal faculty and staff at its 44th Annual Service Awards on Wednesday.
The program honors those who have served the university for 10, 15, and 20 years. This year's group of honorees is larger than ever before, accounting for a collective 10,350 years of service.
"And that's what makes the university such a great place to work, are really very special people. They're loyal and dedicated and they've put a lot of years in. We're very grateful to them," said Susan Carkeek, UVA vice president of human resources.
The university will honor employees who have served 25 to 50 plus years at an awards dinner in June.
