To Knoxville-area UT Faculty and Staff,
The University of Tennessee is fortunate in the remarkable commitment to
service shown by our employees. At a special luncheon today to honor
their work, Chancellor Cheek and I recognized 99 employees with 25 or
more years of service to the University of Tennessee.
Jobs worked by these employees range from facilities services foreman
and messenger to professor to nuclear lab supervisor. Some of those
recognized have worked at UT for 40 years.
The loyalty these men and women have shown to UT is commendable, and it
is essential to the University's strength and mission. To view a

Chancellor Cheek and I consider it a privilege to recognize these
employees, just as we consider it a privilege to serve UT alongside you.
We appreciate your hard work and dedication to this great institution.
Acting President Jan Simek
Chancellor Jimmy G. Cheek
