The University of Nebraska–Lincoln honored 850 faculty and staff for their years of service to the university Sept. 28 at the Lied Center for Performing Arts. The event was part of a celebratory day that featured Chancellor Ronnie Green’s State of Our University Address and an employee cook-out catered by Dining Services. Sixteen Department of Agronomy and Horticulture employees were honored. The annual Service Awards are presented to university employees who complete years of service in five-year intervals.  The awards are calculated both on consolidated or continuous regular employment.
