October 2019: Claire Hickey

Notre Dame Recsports Most Outstanding Student Employee Of The Month October 2019 Claire Hickey 500x300

"For the month of October I am nominating Claire Hickey for the MOST Outstanding Student Employee of the Month. Claire began as a Program Assistant for us at the beginning of this academic year, and I can honestly say that she is a major part of how club sport operations and administration has continued to operate as smoothly as it has (read as: really all together). On an almost daily basis you can find Claire here in the office checking emails, organizing club travel requests, working with clubs to submit purchase requests, and continuing to think of ways to better the experience of our Sport Program participants. During the transition to clubs utilizing PayPal for dues, she continued to work hand in hand with clubs to setup RecRegister payment methods so that clubs could continue to function. A second major project she helped spearhead this month was the updating of club sport forms. All together Claire either updated and/or created twenty club sport forms used for administration in travel, officials payment, home event requests, etc. Probably most noteworthy with all of these projects was Claire’s ability to decipher and understand my/our quick and sporadic conversations or hand written notes that I left with tasks for the day. Often she is already a step ahead in remembering what communication and information needs to be sent to clubs and officers. I spent a lot of the October doing individual meetings with each of the clubs, and Claire’s initiative to continue working on and completing projects was something I have never seen from a student employee. Her energy and initiative is what allowed club operations to continue during an otherwise very busy few months of the semester.
