Penn State Hazleton recognized four longtime employees who are retiring at the end of 2016.
Donna Ellis, Michael Conway, Matthew “Gene” Broyan, Dorrance; and Sue Ann Cervasio were honored at a special luncheon with words from campus Chancellor Gary Lawler along with their supervisors.
“This is a celebration of the legacy our retirees are leaving behind at Penn State Hazleton. We appreciate all their contributions to our students and our campus and wish them all the best in their retirement,” Lawler said.
Matthew “Gene” Broyan was honored for 22 years of service. He began his time at Penn State Hazleton as a janitorial worker and advanced to a role as a maintenance worker in utilities in 1996. In 2001, he was promoted to group leader.
“Gene has been instrumental in getting our events ready for students, serving students and the community. His attention to detail is greatly beneficial to our campus,” Lawler said.
Maintenance Supervisor Michael Chura said, “Gene is a very dedicated and conscientious employee who genuinely cares about the campus and will always go the extra mile to make something right. He takes pride in how the buildings on campus are maintained.”
