The honor comes first at 10 years and then on every succeeding five-year anniversary, and it includes the luncheon and a gift each employee gets to choose.
This year saw 399 staff members honored. They have a combined service of 7,490 years. Barbara Thompson, the law school's Director of Student Records, was also recognized for 40 years of service.
