“Oberlin’s standing as one of the world’s great colleges relies on the hard work of hundreds of people doing all kinds of jobs,” President Marvin Krislov told those gathered in the Science Center’s Perlik Commons on April 22 for the college’s 2013 Service Awards Banquet. The annual banquet honors those celebrating milestone anniversaries of employment with Oberlin Colege—25, 30, 35, 40, 45, and 50 years.

“I’m happy to be here to help honor the women and men who have served Oberlin so well for so many years,” said President Krislov. “You make Oberlin special. Your ideas, your energy, and your dedication make this college and this town great. ”
