Members of the campus community filled the Grupp Fireside Lounge on Friday, April 12 to recognize their colleagues at the annual Celebration of Service.

The ceremony recognized more than 100 faculty, staff and administrators who reached five, 10, 15, 20 and 25 or more years of service to the college. The event also honored those retiring from the college this year.

President John Hurley presented the awards to honorees. Bill Collins, vice president for institutional advancement; Peg McCarthy, vice president for academic affairs; and Marco Benedetti, vice president for business and finance, read the names and citations of the honorees.

The location of this year’s Celebration of Service was moved to the Grupp Fireside Lounge to offer a more casual setting for honorees and their guests, and included an open bar with a wine and cheese reception throughout. All attendees also received a complimentary wine glass, etched with the Canisius name.
