    An Invitation from Michael J. Graham, S.J. to the President’s Reception

    I want to take this opportunity to invite the campus community to join me in celebrating the accomplishments of this academic year and in honoring those celebrating milestone years of service at the annual President’s Reception on Wednesday, May 13, 2015 at 3:00 p.m. in the James and Caroline Duff Banquet Center.  This event offers us a wonderful opportunity for fellowship with our colleagues.  It is a great way to show our appreciation of the hard work of each of our colleagues and to give special thanks to those celebrating milestone years of service.  I encourage everyone in the community to attend, not just honorees, but their supervisors and colleagues.

    In the coming weeks, we will publicize in advance of the event, a list of our milestone honorees.  In this way, supervisors will be notified of employees in their area celebrating a milestone year, and I hope will do their best to adjust schedules to be present with us. Additional information on the event will be provided as the event nears.   As always, thank you for your continued contribution to the success of this event and all you do as a member of the Xavier University community.

    Mike Graham, S.J.
