President Drinan presided, recognising employees marking anniversaries ranging from 5 to 40 years. My Communications Department chair, Jim Corcoran, and I proudly represented a combined 65 years of service. And I received a glorious Presidential Hug!

It was a pleasure working with you and your students, as well.
Congrats to them!
