Retirement Party Honors
On Friday, Jan. 23, the college hosted a festive evening
to celebrate the retirement of 17 colleagues. President Rose welcomed
all, Mercer's vice presidents and deans introduced the honorees, and
union representatives contributed plenty of jokes that made the evening
fun. Mike Dill drove out on Kelsey's stage in George Warner's golf cart,
complete with stuffed animals.
Susan Busch, who chaired the planning committee, said, "It was
a really great party. We had a ball." Many past retirees came back
to celebrate with staff members, and the party included family members
of the retirees. Guests enjoyed a great buffet dinner, decorations,
and dancing. According to Vi Gandy, "It was an exceptional event.
My family enjoyed everything very much."
Each retiree was presented with a $200 check from the college. The
professional staff union gave its members $10 for each year of service.
