B&F Staff Celebrate Service Year Milestones

On Monday, November 16, University Human Resources hosted a virtual Service Awards event, inviting 422 staff members who celebrated 30, 40, 45, 50, or 55 years of service in 2020. Typically, such recognition takes the form of two Service Award banquets, one for Ann Arbor, Dearborn, and Flint campuses and another for Michigan Medicine. But these days we are well beyond “typical.”

Richard Holcomb and Deloris Hunt co-host the Service Awards

The virtual Service Awards was co-hosted by Richard Holcomb, associate vice president for Human Resources, and Deloris Hunt, chief human resource officer at Michigan Medicine. It featured recorded performances by the U-M Glee Club’s Friars and messages from university leaders and colleagues at all levels. The event theme was a simple and sincere expression of gratitude.

Additionally, special messages from President Mark Schlissel and Executive Vice President for Medical Affiars Marschall Runge underscored the extraordinary challenges of the past year. Brief videos from 55-year honoree Diana E. Richards and 50-year honoree Gail Lift were highlights of the event. A recording of the 2020 Service Awards presentation can be viewed on the university’s YouTube channel.

B&F had 38 staff reach 30, 40, or 45 years of service in 2020. Congratulations and thank you for your contributions to the university!
