DUA. Employee Service AwardsPURPOSE
Without the talents, expertise, and loyalty of the Administration, Faculty, Staff, and Regents of South Plains College, the College’s mission could not be successfully accomplished. It is indeed appropriate that these individuals be recognized and honored for their years of service.
The College will host an Employee Service Award banquet. All employees, regardless of years of service, are invited. Service awards of specially designed medallions will be awarded as follows:

The following are eligible to receive employee service awards:
1. All duly
elected or appointed members of the Board of Regents.
2. All faculty, administration, and professional staff employees, whom the Board of Regents approves for employment.
3. All other employees in permanent positions that are regularly scheduled to work a minimum of seventeen (17) hours a week.
COMPUTATION OF YEARS OF SERVICE
Service will be computed using the normal nine month academic year. An
employee/Regent will earn credit for a year of service if he/she is employed or
assumes office before January 1st. An employee/Regent must be
employed or in office on the last day of the academic year in order to receive
credit for that year. However, if the employee/Regent qualifies for retirement
and elects to retire, the employee/Regent will receive credit for his/her last
year of service if the employee/Regent is employed or serves for a minimum of
one semester during that year.
Responsibility for the coordination of the employee service awards process is assigned to the Vice President for Finance and Administration.
