Brookdale Community College recently recognized its inaugural class of Emeritus Employees.
“In so many ways, these individuals are giants upon whose shoulders Brookdale has been built,” said Brookdale President Dr. David Stout. Collectively, the group represents more than 800 years of service to Brookdale. President Stout thanked the Ad Hoc Governance Committee and the Emeritus Selection Committee for their work in honoring outstanding retired employees.
