Luncheon honours 25-year employees for service to University

Marga Pomponio has had a “wonderful 25 years” working at the University of Windsor.

“These people are my family away from home,” says the payroll clerk, one of 25 campus employees honoured at a luncheon Friday for reaching the milestone of a quarter-century of service in 2013. “I have great respect for my colleagues and co-workers.”

She says the luncheon event came as a surprise to her.
