Campbell faculty and staff recognized for years of service

Buies Creek, N.C.—Campbell University celebrated its Faculty and Staff Orientation on Thursday, August 12 in Turner Auditorium.   The event included the presentation of awards for employees who have worked at the University from five to 40 years. Those receiving an award for 40 years of service were Campbell President Dr. Jerry M. Wallace and Registrar David McGirt.

Wallace, who became President of Campbell in 2003, served as a professor for over 30 years and as Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost from 1985 to 2003. Standing before the auditorium as president, Wallace commended the faculty and staff for their hard work and support during the economic hardships of the past year.

“The year 2009-2010 was the most difficult of all of my years at Campbell,” Wallace said. “But with your help, we made our way through. We are looking forward to a brighter future and the opportunity to serve our students even more effectively.”

In spite of the economic downturn, Campbell continues to hire new employees, begin new construction projects that will enhance the appearance and function of the campus and plan new programs that will increase growth, Wallace added.

“The big announcement is the feasibility study conducted to establish a school of Osteopathic Medicine at Campbell in August of 2013, and there will be more white coats on campus than ever before with the opening of the Physician Assistant program in the fall of 2011,” he said. “Can you imagine where we would be today were it not for the spirit of Campbell University lifting the entire school with innovative ideas like the founding of a law and pharmacy school, a new Health Sciences program to address the needs of the community and now perhaps a medical school?”

A total of 94 employees received service awards at the ceremony.

Congratulations, David,

  Are you now Col. Terrell?  From over the Drug Store to the Dean’s Office! Hope it has been a good ride.  Thank you for you interest in the students and your contributions to CU.
  Mary McChesney and I were just discussing last Friday whether you were still at Campbell .  She and Bryan have their first grandchild, Camden Thomas McChesney.  He is a premie and all are excited that he is doing well.
  How are you?  Where is Gordon?  Would love to see you.
