Law School Staff Recognition Picnic Honors Fifteen Employees Ithaca, NEW YORK, June 28, 2013

On June 5, the annual Staff Recognition Picnic brought together staff and faculty of the Law School to celebrate the end of another successful school year and honor staff members who have reached employment milestones. Dinosaur Bar-B-Que catered the lunch held indoors this year in the One World Room of Anabel Taylor Hall.

Stewart J. Schwab, the Allan R. Tessler Dean and Professor of Law, recognized fifteen members of the Law School’s staff who were presented with awards for five or more years of service.

"I always enjoy the yearly staff recognition picnic," said Dean Schwab. "It is good to bring everyone together at the end of the academic year to thank them for their hard work and accomplishments, and to single out for recognition those with milestone dates of service. I am always impressed by the dedication and camaraderie of our Law School staff."
