November 2017: Erin McGuire

"I would like to nominate Erin McGuire as the November 2017 MOST Outstanding Student Employee of the Month. Erin has been our Club Sports Program Assistant whose responsibilities have been predominately prepping for and working our 30+ home events. 

Erin comes into the office to prep for home events by collecting equipment needed, restocking the supervisor binders, filling medical kits, filing paperwork, and communicating with other supervisors on event logistics. Erin is very detail oriented and specific in her reports and communicates very effectively when needed. She is often providing suggestions of things that could help improve our program as well, and has aided in creating and scheduling supervisors for multiple home events and practices.

While working, Erin is always smiling, has a positive attitude, and provides excellent customer service to participants, coaches, and medical staff. She is proactive when monitoring the safety of events and able to solve any conflicts or issues that may arise. When she is working an event, I have full confidence that she can handle anything that arises and will communicate with me if and when necessary.

Also, this semester we asked Erin to train two new Club Sport Supervisors. She accepted without reservation and helped guide these two new employees to be able to work home events on their own. Erin leads by example and has been a true student leader for our program. Without Erin’s dedication and commitment this semester while a lot of my time has been split with aquatics and climbing, the Club Sports program would not be as successful. She has truly stepped up to assist me when needed and exceeded all expectations on every request I’ve given. I am truly grateful for her dedication, passion, and commitment to myself and the Club Sports program and for these reasons I would like to nominate Erin McGuire for November 2017 RecSports MOST Outstanding Student Employee of the Month."
