"I would like to nominate Maia Gordon for the October 2018 MOST Outstanding Student Employee of the Month. Maia has been a rockstar for our marketing staff since she started with the department in August. She assisted me in making sure this year's Domer Run was a success. No matter what she is asked to do, Maia always does it with grace and a positive attitude. Whether it meant sitting on the office floor stuffing packets, or working extra hours to make sure everything was ready for the race, Maia never hesitated to step up to the plate! Maia also helped with many last minute tasks for our IRSA Conference, and delivered efficiently! She is never afraid to ask for clarification when needed and is always learning to learn when she is unsure of something. Maia, I truly thank you for being such a positive addition to our team this Fall!"

"Meghan has been outstanding this semester. She has gone above and beyond on multiple occasions to help our department. In September, she volunteered to work the facility after the football game from 9:00 – 11:00 p.m. when no one else wanted to work. She has assisted with training sessions at the Smith Center and has conducted comprehensive checks at Rockne. She has also helped with miscellaneous tasks such as budgets, reporting maintenance issues, and brainstorming on future training sessions. Meghan has been a huge help for her peers as well. She has fun while at work and makes the shifts enjoyable for everyone else. I greatly appreciate all of her hard work and her drive to always accomplish something while at work. For these reasons, I would like to nominate Meghan for the RecSports September 2018 MOST Outstanding Student Employee of the Month."

"I am nominating Corienne Garbison for the 2018 MOST Outstanding Student Employee of the Month for August. Corienne just started working as a Front Desk Attendant in January but has definitely let her leadership skills stand out. Corienne has volunteered this month to pick up many shifts and came in early for a shift so a coworker wouldn’t be late for a meeting. During the times when the North Dome was closed last Spring, she signed up for Fitness Attendant shifts sometimes double ones at the Smith Center. This past weekend when one of her coworkers was late for a shift, she stayed until he got to our facility. That is truly a team player. Corienne is now a Facility Manager. She is very committed to doing her job well especially checking out/in equipment. She is not afraid to take charge. When some varsity basketball players came in the side door and started to shoot around, she made sure they knew they needed to swipe in. When Corienne is the Facility Manager for the evening, I know the North Dome is supervised efficiently and is safe for our patrons. For these reasons I would like to nominate Corienne Garbison for the August 2018 RecSports MOST Outstanding Student Employee of the Month."
