August 2019: Kevin Gallagher

2019 9 September Most Outstanding Student Of The Month 500x300 Photo

"I would like to nominate Kevin Gallagher as the MOST Outstanding Student Employee of the Month for August. In just a week, Kevin carried the Fitness Attendants through the busiest time on the fitness floor. Kevin picked up an additional eight hours the first two days to help cover peak times of the day. Kevin also had one of his regular shifts with a new employee who was nervous for her first shift and Kevin spent the first portion of the shift showing her the ropes. Kevin has proven in the last week to be leader among his peers, whether that is pitching in an extra hand for the good of the team, or passing down insight to help the new staff feel comfortable. We are incredibly fortunate to have Kevin on our RecSports team for all the leadership and team skills that he brings to each and every shift. For these reasons, I am nominating Kevin Gallagher as the MOST Outstanding Student Employee of the Month for August."
