If fall is approaching, it must be time to recognize VCU employees for their service to the university! This year, 18 School of Pharmacy employees will be honored for a total of 190 years of service to VCU.

The 20-year employees – Don Brophy, Chris Garland, Mike Hindle, Michelle Rhea and Martin Safo — represent all three of the school’s academic departments as well as the dean’s office.

The 46th annual Service Awards Ceremony and Reception — for VCU faculty and staff with five to 55 years of service (in five-year increments) — will take place 3-5 p.m. Oct. 4 at the Siegel Center, 1200 W. Broad St.

Invitations will be mailed to honorees in late August. For those who wish to attend the ceremony, shuttles will be available from the MCV Campus to the Siegel Center and back (details to come).

Following are the 2017 School of Pharmacy honorees. Some have not been at the school the entire time but previously worked for other university units. Congratulations to all!
