On August 5th, Essie Lucky-Barros, our Undergraduate Registrar, celebrated 35 years of service at Yale University. This milestone will officially be celebrated at Yale’s Long-Service Recognition gala in 2021. In these times of social distancing, members of the faculty sent electronic well wishes and the staff marked the occasion with a car parade by Essie’s home complete with signs, music, and balloons.
Essie has guided thousands of students through their studies in history and has seen the department grow and change over the years. She is a beloved member of the History Department community and we wish her heartfelt congratulations on this milestone.
