East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania honored 60 employees for their service and dedication during the annual Employee Recognition Ceremony on Monday, April 8. Employees were acknowledged for service in five-year increments, ranging from 10 to 40 years.

“It is great to see such a nice cross-section of campus represented during this year’s recognition ceremony,” said ESU President Kenneth Long. “Some of this year’s honorees teach in the broad range of disciplines across the curriculum, while others provide administrative support services or student services, make sure this campus is in pristine condition or serve the campus by keeping our technology running smoothly. The work by all these individuals is important for both recruiting and retaining our students and in successfully fulfilling the university’s mission.”
