On April 25 Statewide staff gathered to recognize employees who have reached an employment milestone – 5-, 10-, 15-, 20- or 25-years of service – during 2016 and to present the 2016 Outstanding Employees and Department awards.

The event was coordinated by the Statewide Administration Assembly who provided snacks and treats for the event, with assistance and award funding from the Office of the President and Human Resources, and door prizes from the UA Foundation, Office of Public Affairs, UA College Savings Plan, UAA Athletics, UAA Planetarium, UAF Athletics, UAF DRAW and UAF Office of the Bursar.
