Faculty, Staff Honored for Service to the University
at Retirement and Recognition Ceremonies

April 20, 2012

The University honored faculty and staff for their service at Retirement and Recognition Ceremonies in Atlanta and Macon. In addition to honoring retirees and those who had reached five-year service milestones, the events honored two Mercer Spirit Award winners. This year’s recipients were Jerome A. Gratigny, new media instructional specialist, Web Management, in Macon; and Judy G. Mosteller, administrative assistant to the dean, Georgia Baptist College of Nursing, in Atlanta. The award is a community-based recognition that re-affirms Mercer’s commitment to customer service and satisfaction and recognizes employees who exhibit exceptional behaviors of caring, respect, and the building of the Mercer community. It also recognizes two employees who have demonstrated a high level of service to members of the University community, both internal and external, as well as outside constituencies. Their accomplishments reflect a high level of service, dedication, conscientiousness and compassion, and going beyond what are normal expectations.

The Atlanta faculty and staff retirees honored were: Ronald W. Johnson, Larry L. McSwain and Ann L. Stewart. The Macon faculty and staff retirees honored were: Diane H. Baca, Fan Chen, Whitney V. McMath, Randall D. Peters, James E. Radiker, Michael S. Raynor, Rachelle D. Siniard and JoAnna M. Watson. All retirees were honored for their dedication to the University.
