2016 Staff Rewards & Recognition

This year, we celebrate 252 colleagues who will be recognized for a collective 2,785 years of service at Wake Forest University. We recognized these individuals at a luncheon and campus-wide celebration on October 11, 2016. In the video below we meet members of our campus community as they celebrate milestones in their careers at Wake Forest University.

TalenTV is devoted to celebrating the unique stories of Wake Forest’s campus community while working to recruit, retain, and develop talent. If you have a story you’d like to share on an upcoming video or know of a colleague that deserves to be recognized, contact us via social media @WFUtalent or email AskHR@wfu.edu.

Looking for photos from the luncheon or campus-wide celebration? Visit the WFUtalent Flickr page to download and share your favorites photos via social media using #WFUyears.

Congratulations to our Employee of the Year award winners:
– Patty Kennedy, Administrative Assistant, Health and Exercise Science
– Betsy Chapman, Director of Parent Giving, Advancement
