September 2016: Brendan Hughes


"I would like to nominate Brendan Hughes as the MOST Outstanding Employee of the Month for September. Brendan came to RecSports via Stonehill College in Easton, MA. He was a referee and a supervisor in their intramural program for three years. With all that experience behind him, he was a perfect candidate for a Facility Manager. He did not disappoint! Brendan arrived early on campus before our staff orientation and was trained in one day at the front desk, in the fitness room and as a Facility Manager. As a Facility Manager, he shows great leadership skills with his team members and gives specific details (out of hair ties) on his End of Shift Reports. Brendan has been very flexible with his hours. He has taken the hard to fill late morning and early afternoon shifts many times even if it was for one hour. He has great customer service skills at the Front Desk. If he doesn’t know the answer to a patron’s question, then he will come back and ask the appropriate professional staff member. The last thing that Brendan does before he leaves his day shift is he comes into my office and asks if I need anything else. Most of the time I don’t need anything and I just say good bye. Today is different. I need to say thank you for all your hard work and your commitment to RecSports. For these reasons I would like to nominate Brendan Hughes for 2016 September RecSports MOST Outstanding Employee of the Month."

In my free time I enjoy playing sports like basketball and golf.  At my undergrad, Stonehill College, I was on the lacrosse team so I also try to get out and toss the ball around.  I DJ for events including weddings and other social gatherings.  Other then that, I hangout with friends, listen to music, and watch movies.
