Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) today honored those who began their careers with the company 50 and 75 years ago. The annual Service Awards luncheon, held at the Corning Museum of Glass, recognized 95 employees and retirees who started their careers with the company in 1966, and eight retirees who began their careers with Corning in 1941.
Wendell P. Weeks, Corning Incorporated’s chairman and chief executive officer, hosted the luncheon and told attendees, “You’ve all played a key role in Corning’s success, and we’re honored to recognize you for your service.”
Weeks recounted key events that occurred in the world in 1941 and 1966, and also drew comparisons with how Corning operated in those times and today.
“While our products and markets have changed since 1941 and 1966, we continue to operate diverse businesses and participate in important industries,” Weeks said. “I always enjoy these trips down memory lane because they remind me what a special company we’re all part of: a company that has stood the test of time; a company that continues to evolve to meet the needs of changing markets; a company that makes things that really matter to the world.”
Following Weeks’ remarks, each member from the “Class of ’66” was recognized and presented a check for $1,000. Those from the “Class of ’41” were also honored and presented a check for $2,500.
