Stony Brook University employees who marked milestones of 25 years or more of service in 2023 were honored January 24 with a Service Recognition Luncheon at the Bauman Center for Leadership and Service.

Each awardee received a certificate and a pin, while honorees celebrating 40, 45, 50 and 55 years of service were called to the stage to be recognized.

President Maurie McInnis credited the hard work of the honorees for helping Stony Brook become the top-ranked public university in New York. “Our exemplary honorees show this institution at its best,” she said. “They demonstrate how to work together to build something great. You have supported many of this institution’s defining moments, and I want to thank you for being excellent stewards of this university.”

McInnis described the culture of 1998, the year in which honorees celebrating 25 years of service began working at Stony Brook. “Let’s start by casting our minds back 25 years ago today. 1998… DVD players were replacing VHS tapes, SpongeBob aired its first episode, and we were gripped by Harry Potter mania and stressed about Y2K. And while some of that sounds very familiar, Stony Brook University is much different than it was 25 years ago. We have grown much stronger thanks to all of you.”

A total of three people celebrated 55 years of service and topped the list of 392 employees who were honored at the ceremony. Honorees represented a broad spectrum of employees, including professors, doctors, counselors, administrators, leaders and more.
