One of the long-standing traditions of our university is to publicly acknowledge the staff that has contributed to our success. Each spring we hold the Service Excellence Dinner at which staff members who are celebrating a number of years of service to DeSales University are recognized. It is also an opportunity for us to thank them for sharing their gifts with our community. We also invite newly hired employees and their guests to attend the dinner in an effort to welcome them to DeSales.
One of the highlights of the evening is the presentation to select members of our family who have distinguished themselves through service to the university. The President’s Cabinet has selected Amy Diehl as the 2011 Support Staff Employee of the Year and Kate Ferris as the 2011 Professional Staff Employee of the Year. I ask that you extend congratulations to Amy and Kate for earning these distinctions and thank them for the valuable contributions they have made to the university over the years.
— Bernard F. O’Connor, OSFS, President
