Every year, the Georgetown University Service Awards serve as a reminder of the hard work and dedication required for the University to accomplish its mission. On Wednesday, April 24, President DeGioia hosted the 2019 Georgetown University Service Awards Presentation to recognize the commitment of 83 administrative employees who have worked at the University for 20, 25, 30, 35, 40 and 45 years.
In addition to the President’s remarks, Norman Francis, Jr. (COL ‘20), the newly-elected President of the Georgetown University Student Association (GUSA), offered words of gratitude to our longest serving staff members for their exceptional commitment to Georgetown and its students. The honorees, their guests, and respective supervisors were treated to a celebratory luncheon after the awards ceremony.
Judith R. Rodriguez, honored for 30 years of service to the University, fondly remembers the celebration:
“The Service Awards was a meaningful celebration to me because it made me feel that I am a valued member of the larger and diverse Georgetown University community. It was great to celebrate together with my fellow GU colleagues . . . Thank you so much for making us feel appreciated!”
The Department of Human Resources looks forward to next year’s ceremony and the opportunity to celebrate a new group of Service Awards honorees.
