September 2017: Lydia Piendel

Lydia Eom 500 X 300

"I am nominating Lydia Piendel for the September 2017 MOST Outstanding Student Employee of the Month. Lydia just started her third year at the Rock. She has been a welcoming presence at the Front Desk for our patrons since day one. Lydia has volunteered this month to pick up many of the early morning shifts in the Weight Room. She has been a true leader this year by making sure that our new staff members are welcomed to the Rockne team by getting them entered into the staff’s group text. She has also been the force behind the idea of The Rock vs. The RSRC dodgeball game. This past Wednesday, she picked up a partial shift between classes for a co-worker who was notified about on-campus employment interview the night before his afternoon shift. Lydia came in and worked at the Front Desk for one hour and then went to class. That is a true team player! For these reasons I would like to nominate Lydia Piendel for the September 2017 RecSports MOST Outstanding Student Employee of the Month."
