Christopher C. Colenda, M.D., M.P.H., dean of the College of Medicine, served as master of ceremonies and presented the awards.
Years of Service Certificates were presented to employees who have reached five, 10, 15, 20 and 25-year milestones with the College of Medicine. Receiving service recognition for 20 and 25 years of service at the ceremony were:

An Outstanding Staff Award was also presented at the ceremony. Receiving the award was Eddie Williams, mail services leader. One individual who nominated Mr. Williams for the award noted: “Eddie has delivered mail between the College Station and Temple Campuses twice a week for the past 17 years. Eddie takes this position seriously and is dedicated to serving the College of Medicine in this capacity. Though he gets up at four in the morning to be in College Station by eight A.M., he always greets you with a kind word and a smile. He is certainly deserving of this award.”
