Recognition Awards: 25 Year Tenure
Service Award Level: Chapter
Epsilon Sigma Phi chapters have recognized tenure levels for Extension professionals for many years. The 25 year milestone has been almost universally spotlighted, and has been sanctioned by the National ESP Board as one worthy of certificate recognition.
This recognition is for 25 years of Extension service (not to include other governmental (Civil Service) employment and military service time, as do the USDA tenure recognition also available to Chapter Extension employees).
National guidelines allow each Epsilon Sigma Phi chapter to nominate as many candidates as who qualify for this tenure level each year. Recipients must be current ESP members whose dues are paid for the previous year and the current year (by February 1).
