Went to staff years of service yesterday and it brought back wonderful memories! I've been a staff member going on 21 years and I remember when the luncheons were out on the lawn just like it was yesterday. The weather was perfect, lunch was fantastic, including drinks and cookies - yum! President Eibeck's address to the staff was encouraging and respectful. Maria Pallavicini, Ken Mullen, Patrick Day and others sense of humor (especially Patrick Day) was entertaining and made the luncheon very enjoyable - we all had some good laughs! And the live music is always a nice touch! Yesterday, I felt like the staff were genuinely appreciated - Thanks President Eibeck for truly showing your appreciation to staff!
Happy to work for a University that recognizes the contributions of the staff to the contributions to our committment to student success. Glad some faculty were able to join us so the entire Pacific famiy could celebrate together.
I enjoyed the food, people, and event. This is the way Staff Years of Service should be celebrated. It was a beautiful day and I really liked that it was an outside event. The awards were lovely as well for a good celebration and memory. Thank you.
