On March 5, 2019, Stony Brook held its annual Service Awards celebration for employees marking 25 years or more of service to the University. More than 160 of those celebrating a milestone from 2018 filled the Student Activities Center Ballroom A for the festivities.

Stony Brook University President Samuel L. Stanley Jr. expressed his gratitude at the commitment, skills and contributions of everyone who helped shape Stony Brook throughout its 62-year history. “You are the heart and soul of Stony Brook University. You’ve taken us far beyond our humble beginnings, transforming us into an internationally recognized center for excellence, and one of the top public research universities in the country. In fact, we were recently ranked #80 among U.S. colleges and universities by U.S. News and World Report, our highest ranking in the University’s history, and we owe much of that success to you,” he said.

He then asked the 25-, 30- and 35-year honorees to stand first so they could be recognized and applauded for their service. He then individually recognized the senior honorees who were in attendance, praising their 40-, 45- and 50-years of service. Each senior honoree was introduced and brought up to the podium to receive their award.

A total of 343 people achieved recognized levels of service in 2018: 152 reached 25 years, 113 reached 30 years, 54 reached 35 years, 10 reached 40 years, another 10 celebrated 45 years, and four are at 50 years and still going strong. In addition to special Tiffany gifts, attendees each received pins displaying their years of service and were treated to the music of graduate student Phuc Phan, a cellist in the Department of Music.
