Law School Staff Recognition Picnic Celebrates a Collective 215 Years of Service

Ithaca, NEW YORK, July 6, 2012
On June 5, the annual Staff Recognition Picnic brought together more than 130 members of the Cornell Law School community. As Law School employees enjoyed a catered meal from Syracuse’s Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, sixteen members of the school’s staff were presented with awards recognizing five or more years of service.

Among the honorees were several who had been with the Law School for ten or more years: Larry Bush, Christopher Dillon, Jamie Weber, Cheryl Winder, Richard Geiger, Nan Colvin, Deborah Stillman, and Elizabeth Teskey. Special mention was made of Larry Bush, Executive Director of the Clarke Center for International and Comparative Legal Studies, retiring after ten years at Cornell Law; Nancy Osborn, Assistant Registrar, retiring after 14 years; and Nan Colvin, Registrar, retiring after 40 years.

"We had a good turnout for the end-of-year event, where we celebrated 215 years of collective service,” says Stewart J. Schwab, the Allan R. Tessler Dean and Professor of Law. “Both our faculty and staff appreciated the opportunity to recognize their colleagues for their hard work on behalf of the Law School.”
