Long-serving employees and those departing BU were honoured at a special afternoon in December.

In total, more than 20 retirees with more than 500 years of combined service were honoured at the afternoon event, as well as dozens of people recognized for achieving milestones of 10 years or longer. See the complete list.

“This says a lot about the level of service and intensity … to the university, but also the students,” said President Gervan Fearon at the ceremony. “I really applaud the contributions you’ve made.”

After the presentation of long-service awards and retirement appreciations, a reception was held for friends and family.

Here is a gallery of photos from the event.
