President Michael Driscoll offers congratulations to employees who would have been honored at this week’s Service Awards Luncheon.
The annual Service Awards Luncheon, which was supposed to take place this week, is a casualty of our new circumstances of uncertainty. I value each and every one of our employees, and I want to take a moment to congratulate those of you who completed a milestone year of service in 2019.
Of course, I’d rather congratulate you in person, and hope I have the chance to do so someday. Each of you plays a different role, and each role is equally important and adds to the one common goal we share—of creating a community in which we prepare students to care for our future. We want those students to graduate and go off in the world to do great things, but we want them to have a place they remember fondly and return to, as they do their own homes.
Operating a university takes a variety of talent, a great deal of creativity and thought, and a lot of sweat. It will continue to take concentrated teamwork to through the rough times, but I have every confidence we’ll come through all of this well—and that’s because of you and your dedication to this place we share. Without you, IUP wouldn’t be IUP.
