Employees Feted for Years of Service, "Acts of Kindness"; Retirees Applauded for Loyal Service to the College

MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. – SUNY Orange celebrated its employees and retirees during separate ceremonies held on the Middletown campus on Thursday, May 11.

During a morning employee recognition event, the College recognized those employees who have reached service milestones of 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 and 40 years at SUNY Orange. Additionally, seven employees were presented with “random acts of kindness” awards for things they did, outside of their normal job description, to help colleagues or students within the past academic year.

In addition, College President Dr. Kristine Young introduced professors Edward Leonard, Michael Strmiska and Heidi Weber as winners of 2017 SUNY Chancellor’s Awards. Leonard and Weber were cited for excellence in teaching and Strmiska was recognized for excellence in professional scholarship and creative activities.

Later in the afternoon, the College offered a celebratory sendoff to seven retiring employees who combined to provide 216 years of service to SUNY Orange.
