Lynn University celebrated its employees’ contributions and service at the annual Employee Recognition Breakfast, April 13.
“Through your hard work and dedication, our university continues to accomplish great things,” said Lynn President Kevin M. Ross, who presided over the event, recapped another successful year, touted the completion of Lynn 2020 and announced the next State of the University theme.
“When we break ground on the [Christine E. Lynn] University Center (April 20), we will have completed the final step of our strategic plan, Lynn 2020, three years ahead of schedule,” said Ross. “Together, under Lynn 2020, we will have completed 51 strategic priorities under five areas, and so much more, including hosting the final 2012 presidential debate and our iPad initiative.”
Lynn employees were recognized for their years of service: 5, 10, 15 and 20 years. Many employees have worked at Lynn 25–44 years, totaling 765 years of service!
Lynn employees are also recognized through a monthly employee appreciation program. The employee of the year was announced at the breakfast. Jennifer Stellato, executive assistant in the Office of Admission, received the honor which comes with a $500 bonus, two days off and a cruise voucher.
