Every year Kenyon honors its long-term employees by presenting years of service recognition awards. In the 1998-99 academic year, we began a program (in addition to the years of service recognition) to honor exempt and non-exempt staff members who had exceptional accomplishments; who provided outstanding service and dedication to Kenyon students, staff, and others and who contributed to the overall vitality, beauty and legacy of the College.

Nominations can be made by any Kenyon employee or student. The Office of Human Resources reviews the nominations with the appropriate division head then forwarding the nomination to a selection committee who will review the nominations and recommend one exempt and one non-exempt staff member to receive the award. The award will be comprised of an honorary plaque and an accompanying check in the amount of $500! Also, the recipients of this award will receive FREE meals at the All Employee Luncheons for the upcoming academic year.

This honor is intended to publicly recognize the work of select exempt and non-exempt staff members who, while acknowledged for their years of service, deserve special recognition for extraordinary contributions to the College.

Recipients are announced at the annual Years of Service recognition event in May.
