Every year the Life Span Institute at Parsons’ staff gather to celebrate the accumulated years of service to the University of Kansas of our colleagues. Some would call it work, and sometimes we do as well, however, it’s really a journey with friends as evidenced by the people in the photograph.
Five years ago (2012 picture left, from left) Laura Hanigan, Tammy Schoenhofer, and Kim Page posed for the picture and on July 18, 2017, they did it again.
Kim Page, Research Project Specialist, received her 10-year pin, presented by Laura Hanigan; Tammy Schoenhofer, Accounting Specialist, received her 20-year pin and commemorative paperweight, presented by Laura; and Laura Hanigan, Business Coordinator, with 25 years of service, received her 25-year pin, KU pen, and Jayhawk pen box, presented by David Lindeman, Director, LSI/Parsons. (2017 picture right, back row, left, Laura, Kim; front row, Tammy.)
And like every other time we have celebrated years of service, Laura Hanigan served as our emcee (she knows us well), with stories and laughter. Pins and gifts were bestowed, ambience was created, and refreshments were served. We’re planning to do it again next year. You can mark it on your calendar!
