• The 20-Year Club Service Awards Program is an annual event established in 1966 to honor classified and unclassified employees who have dedicated 20 years of continuous service to Kent State University. The program celebrates these individuals on a fiscal year period and holds a special recognition ceremony after the close of the fiscal year.

    Each year friends, family and co-workers join in honoring inductees at an awards dinner. Upon reaching their 20-year milestone, employees may select from a chair or lamp for their home or office, or a bench or tree to be placed on campus in their honor.

    The next ceremony will recognize individuals with their 20-year service anniversaries between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020. The induction will be held Fall 2020. 20-Year Club Inductees will recieve more information from the Office of the President at a later date.
