Joyner Library celebrates twelve service award recipients

Joyner Library celebrated the 2017 Service Awards of twelve library recipients during a July 27 reception in the Faulkner Gallery.

The Service Awards Program is designed to serve as a sign of ECU’s appreciation towards the dedicated service its employees provide to the State of North Carolina and that of the UNC education system throughout their tenure.  Service awards are presented to each eligible employee at milestone dates in their career until retirement.

“Our honorees share a commitment to serving the public and making a positive difference through their work,” said Joyner Library Director, Jan Lewis. “Thanks to them – and to all of our staff members – for what they do every day to provide outstanding library services to the ECU community.”

Carolyn Willis and Ramona Okechukwu were each awarded for the longest amount of service at twenty-five years, followed by Hazel Walker with twenty years of service.

Celebrating fifteen years of service were Lisa Barricella and John Lawrence and with ten years of service, Chris Hodges and Tracie Hampton were also recognized.

Five-year service awards went to Katy Webb, Amanda Vinogradov, Brooke Tolar, Matt Clark, and Judith Barber.
