Nearly 100 Seattle Central employees attended the college’s annual employee celebration ceremony earlier this month to recognize their achievements and service. In addition to honoring employees who reached service milestones, the event recognized faculty who received tenure and core status as well as League for Innovation awardees.
Patricia Barnes, a student who will graduate next month from the Applied Behavioral Sciences bachelor’s degree program, also presented a plaque to college employees thanking them for their service and the impact many of them have had on her development. After the celebration, employees celebrated a successful academic year with a toast, and recognized the accomplishments of their peers on an interactive display.
