TWO LLI DIRECTORS HONORED AS “WORKER OF THE YEAR”
Dr. Rose H. Arthur, Founder and Director of the Rivier Institute for Senior Education has been named NH Older Worker of the Year by Experience Works. She will be honored with a Prime Time Award at an October ceremony in Washington, DC. The award, she says, is really a recognition of the success of RISE, the senior education program she began nine years ago for the Greater Nashua area. The award also highlights the college as an institution which hires and keeps its experienced older workers. Arthur has been with the college since 1988 when she accepted the deanship of Rivier’s Undergraduate Evening School.

Marvin Schlafer, Director of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Rutgers University in New Jersey has been named New Jersey Older Worker of the Year by Experience Works. For the last thirteen years under Marvin’s direction the program has grown to more than 700 members offering more than 70 courses in three different locations. Marvin’s award states that he is an outstanding role model for others who want and need to remain in the workforce past the “traditional” retirement age and an outstanding example to employers of what mature individuals bring to the workplace.

Experience Works Prime Time Awards Program is America’s singular and most far reaching effort to salute older workers. No other national program recruits and identifies people over age 65 who are still contributing to their communities and keeping themselves healthy by working. The Prime Time Awards seeks to remove barriers and lessen stereotypes about older workers. Launched in 1998, Experience Works Prime Times Awards Program salutes America’s senior workforce by identifying winners in three categories: Outstanding Older Workers, Outstanding Employers of Older Workers and America’s Oldest Worker.
