Joliet Junior College is very proud that so many of our faculty and staff stay with us for a number of years. Service longevity is recognized and celebrated each year. Employees who reach a landmark anniversary are recognized at the annual Service Recognition Celebration held in the early spring. The Celebration honors service award recipients from the previous calendar year and retirees from the current academic year.
For every five years of service, employees receive a special gemstone pin depicting their years of service. In addition, individuals celebrating 20, 25, 30 or 35 years of service and those who retire within the academic year have the opportunity to select a gift of their choice from a special gift catalog. The value of the gift increases with years of service.
