Queen’s employees who have reached milestone achievements of continuous service were recognized by the university during the annual Celebration of Service on Monday, May 14.

A total of 158 staff and faculty members were honoured for their contributions while reaching employment milestones of 25, 30, 35, 40, 45 and 50 years at Queen’s during the ceremony at Ban Righ Dining Hall.

This year’s event was highlighted by Boris Castel’s achievement of reaching the 50-year milestone. Dr. Castel, Professor Emeritus in the Department of Physics, Engineering Physics and Astronomy, is the long-time editor of Queen’s Quarterly.

The dinner event, attended by the recipients, their families and friends, as well as Principal Daniel Woolf, was hosted by Dan Bradshaw, Associate Vice-Principal (Human Resources).

“The Celebration of Service really is the best event each year for me as the Associate Vice-Principal of Human Resources,” Mr. Bradshaw says. “It is a time when we in Human Resources, along with the Principal, have the privilege of hosting and thanking our long-service employees for their many years of dedication to their professions, to our students, and to Queen’s. It truly is a privilege.”

Further information about the Celebration of Service and other events is available on the recently-launched Events and Recognition page of the Human Resources website.
