September 2019: Anthony Reo
"I would like to nominate Anthony Reo as the MOST Outstanding Student Employee of the Month for September 2019. In his second year with the marketing team, Anthony has continued to be a leader amongst our staff and is the first one to always "jump in" whenever help is needed. In preparation for a new multimedia purchase, Anthony assisted in creating policies and procedures for our staff, as well as a new equipment checkout form. In addition this month, Anthony spent 3 1/2 hours until 11:30 p.m. with me down in The Pit one night doing a photoshoot with the Women's Boxing Club captains. Not only was he playing the role of Mr. Photographer by ensuring we had every angle and correct lighting that suited the needs of the captains, he was also enthusiastic every step of the way. Anthony has also taken the lead on coverage for photography and videography for Club Sports and all Intramural Sports Championships and always steps in for every need if his schedule allots. It has been a pleasure watching Anthony grow in his position. From his style of photography, to the creation of a script in Google Drive that enables us to easily document our photography, to his self-teaching of Adobe Premiere Pro for editing and the creation of videos, Anthony is never afraid to take on a project with a "get it done attitude." In the 12 months Anthony has been working with us, not once have I heard a negative comment come from him, no matter the circumstance. It is for these reasons and many more that I nominate Anthony Reo as the September 2019 MOST Outstanding Student Employee of the Month."
