The University of Georgia Graduate School Staff Recognition Program, established in 2021, provides the opportunity to express the University’s appreciation for years of loyal service provided by dedicated staff members. The University of Georgia Graduate School hosted its first annual Staff Recognition Luncheon on August 26, 2021, in the Magnolia Ballroom of the Georgia Center. Honored for their years of university service were Olivia Myers and Melanie Peiper for five years, Amie Jones, Jennifer Smith, and Chuck Thornton for ten years, Andrey Dub for fifteen years, and Robin Bingham, Todd Dorsey and Cicely Robinson-Jones for twenty years. The Graduate School plans to host this event annually, honoring those staff members who have hit milestones of continuous service during the previous twelve months. Those honored receive commemorative plaques and other university-themed gifts such as sweatshirts, jackets, and pen sets.
