DCG Employees Celebrate Anniversaries

Written by Stacey Hudson

The DCG is celebrating an incredible 470 years of service with our milestone employee anniversaries this year. Each year, AU Human Resources recognizes employees who are hitting the 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, and 40-year mark. Thirty-nine DCG employees will enjoy an anniversary, with an average of nearly 12 years of service – from Sterile Supplies Specialist Tency Alapatt who is celebrating 5 years with the DCG to Dr. Frederick Rueggeberg (left) who is celebrating 35 years.

“We have persevered numerous challenges over the past two years, and we have weathered this historic pandemic through the strength and resourcefulness of our people,” said Dr. Carol Lefebvre, Dean of the college. “Our people are a testament to ethical public service and exceptional dental education.”
