President's Service Award Luncheon

Lawrence is pleased to salute each of our staff member’s efforts in helping to make Lawrence one of the country’s premier liberal arts colleges through our Service Award Luncheon. This program is one way for the University to gratefully acknowledge the hard work and dedication of each staff member.

The service awards program recognizes service award milestones from five years to 40+ years of service. Recipients are honored at the President’s Service Award Luncheon, an annual celebration to honor employees who attain service milestones throughout the past year. Service award recipients, along with their guests and supervisors, attend the President’s Service Award Luncheon, which includes presentation of service awards, presentation of the President’s Award of Excellence and musical entertainment.
