Faculty and Staff Council Awards and Recognition Ceremony

Human Resources and Faculty and Staff Council hosted the annual Faculty and Staff Council Awards and Recognition Ceremony Thursday, May 5 in the J. Scheidegger Center for the Arts Lindenwood Theater. 

The ceremony recognized years of service recipients, retirees, and faculty and staff award winners.  

The ceremony began with a message from Lindenwood President Dr. John Porter and brief speeches from Faculty and Staff Council Chair members Deb Ayres and Brooke Gutermuth.  

Each retiree and award recipient was called on stage to receive their award, custom designed by Lindenwood Graphic Design Lab Coordinator Brandon Perkins and his Graphic Design Lab team.  

This year, there were six total retirees, four of which were recognized though heartfelt speeches by one of their colleagues.  

The awards concluded with a message from Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs Bethany Alden-Rivers. Afterwards, guests were invited to enjoy refreshments and cookies in the J. Scheidegger lobby.
