Brookhaven College employees came together for the Annual Emerald Awards on January 29th. This year the awards program paid homage to the long-running radio show “A Prairie Home Companion,” giving reasons for employees to laugh and relax at the beginning of an especially busy spring term. The awards recognize the college’s employee award recipients and nominees. The ceremony also serves as a welcome and introduction to the campus for new employees and acknowledges employees who have reached a milestone from five years to 40 years in college and district service.
