Cassie Alfheim, student assistant with the office of Grants and Research, was named UW-Green Bay’s Student Employee of the Year and was also surprised with the announcement that she is State Award Winner for the same recognition, at a ceremony today (April 13) on campus. Students were nominated by faculty and staff and were judged by an impartial panel on the basis of reliability, quality of work, initiative, professionalism, and uniqueness of contribution.

The April 13 recognition ceremony in UW-Green Bay’s University Union helped kick off Student Employee Appreciation Week, which runs through Friday, April 17. In 2013-14, UW-Green Bay employed 1,100 employees in 1,569 student positions. Students worked a total of 289,856 hours, averaging nine hours per week at $8.87 per hour and earning $3,063,476.42 in student wages.

In her nomination, it was noted that Alfheim ensures timely and smooth transmission of all grant proposals and is the University’s liaison for the major systemwide Posters in the Rotunda event in Madison, coordinating all UWGB student/legislator interactions. Alfheim is from Green Bay and graduated from Pulaski High School.

The nomination for Alfheim states, “On a daily basis, she interacts with faculty, upper administration, as well as academic staff representing the Grants and Research and Provost’s Office. Her professionalism far exceeds that of a typical student. She is sought after to contribute in planning national, regional, and campus workshops and conferences. Outside of her office role, she volunteers on the Board of Directors for Evergreen Theater, is a committee member for a local charity golf outing, assists students for commencement, and served as a travel companion for WWII veterans.”

“I often utilize Cassie’s skills to make sure every item meets and exceeds the high standards of this University and to ensure future and continued funding is secured,” said her supervisor Lydia Nonn. “Cassie wants to make the world a better place. Her ability to compassionately empathize with people moves her to use her talents to make a difference every day.”

Alfheim was presented with a $50 gift card to The Phoenix Bookstore and a UW-Green Bay Student Employee of the Year engraved plaque. Her name also was engraved on a plaque that will hang in the Financial Aid and Student Employment Office, and her photo, noting the honor, will be displayed for the next year inside the Grants and Research Office. She was one of 13 outstanding students nominated for the award. Five of the other nominees were recognized for their outstanding demonstration of one of the five evaluation qualities:
