Mayle was among 60 employees thanked during Wednesday's 26th annual Classified Service Awards event held in Walter Hall Rotunda on the Athens Campus.


Employees were recognized for completing 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 and 35 years of service. Honorees received a special gift according to their years of service.


President Dr. M. Duane Nellis attended the ceremony and thanked the employees for their outstanding service.


Mayle Years of Service"We couldn’t be the institution we are today without the tremendous support that each of you provide,” President Nellis said. “I’ve worked at various other universities across the country, and around different regions of the country as well, and I instantly recognized what a special place this is and what truly distinguishes this institution from all the rest are the people. It’s truly from the heart, the people here, including the people in this room, are difference makers and they care, genuinely care about the success of this institution and care about each other, and are supportive of each other. They really, truly are a part of a family.”


Dr. Chaden Djalali, OHIO’s first-year executive vice president and provost, recognized how significant the Classified Senate Awards are by sharing that 1,300 collective years of service were recognized at the ceremony.


“You play a critical role in making the time at Ohio University a positive, high-quality learning experience for the students we serve and also for the faculty and the administrators,” Dr. Djalali said. “You help make their educational programs operate, you help make their support services possible, many of you are front-line providers of those services and many of you supervise students in their first real-world work experience. Interactions they have with you on the job are going to influence them throughout their professional lives. The consistency of your dedication is a major part of what makes Ohio University so unique and so special. You are part of the heart and soul of this great university.”


Classified Senate Chair Amanda Graham said she appreciated the attendance of President Nellis and Executive Vice President and Provost Djalali and thanked them for taking time out of their busy schedules to honor the classified employees.


The ceremony ended with a raffle where the honorees won outstanding door prizes. President Nellis also joined the honorees for group photos by years of service.
