Quarter Century Club breakfast April 24

After 25 years of service, 58 new faculty and staff members will be inducted into WSU’s Quarter Century Club during its annual recognition breakfast at 8 a.m. Tuesday, April 24, in the Ensminger Pavilion on Wilson Road on the WSU Pullman campus.

Thirty of the current members will be recognized for 50 year of association with Washington State University. 

Anyone may attend the breakfast, which costs $12.  To make reservations, phone Human Resource Services at 335-4521.

To be inducted into the club, members must have worked at WSU for 25 years in a benefits qualifying position. Once they are inducted into the club, they will be recognized again 25 years later as half-century members, even if they have retired.

The current faculty member with the longest employment record is John Gorham, a professor of Veterinary Microbiology and Pathology, who started at WSU in 1948.  The classified staff member with the most longevity is Jacqueline Knight, Facilities Operation Center supervisor at WSU Pullman, who started at WSU in 1961.
