Experience and dedication honored at Years of Service ceremony

NIEHS employees and leadership gathered Sept. 26 for the annual Years of Service ceremony, recognizing long-term public servants and retirees.

NIEHS employees and leadership gathered Sept. 26 for the annual Years of Service ceremony, recognizing long-term public servants and retirees. NIEHS and National Toxicology Program Director Linda Birnbaum, Ph.D., provided opening comments and handed out certificates.

“We’re here to recognize and honor their service and dedication, and most importantly, to thank every single one of you,” Birnbaum said. “When we work for the government, we are ultimately working for the American people.” The length of service represented by this year’s group of honorees totaled 890 years, she said.

NIEHS Executive Director Chris Long emceed the event, recognizing those who have worked for the government 10, 20, 30, and 40 years, as well as those who retired in the past year. Honorees represented all parts of the NIEHS — the Divisions of Intramural Research, Extramural Research and Training, and National Toxicology Program, as well as the Office of Management and Office of the Director.

Those receiving recognition joined guests and colleagues afterward for a reception in the lobby, hosted by the NIEHS leadership.
