McPherson College Honors Employees’ Years Of Service

Service Award Drive-thru

President Michael Schneider presents the McPherson College Service Award to Monica Rice, director of alumni and constituent relations, at a drive-through awards and dinner celebration.

McPherson College celebrated a combined total of more than 270 years of service to the college when it recognized faculty, staff, and board of trustee members. Faculty and staff were treated to a drive-through dinner and awards presentation on campus. This year’s event replaced the reception and dinner traditionally held honoring those who have served the college from five to 30 years.

Members of the campus administrative team presented the honorees with their award and take-out dinners prepared by the campus food service in front of the campus entrance on Thursday, February 26.

“The outstanding achievements and accomplishments by the honorees in the classroom, within individual departments, and in the McPherson community propel the college beyond being a great college to work for,” said Brenda Stocklin-Smith, director of human resources. “These honorees facilitate world-class experiences for our students and it is in this deep sense of campus community where our students excel to be leaders of the future.”
