Hehn takes Student Employee of the Year honor
According to Dean of Enrollment Services Mike Stearney, 700 students work nearly 284,000 collective hours each year at UW-Green Bay. Eleven of those students were nominated as Student Employee of the Year. Only one, Stacy Hehn, a senior Environmental Policy and Planning major from Niagara, Wis., was named UW-Green Bay’s 2010-11 Student Employee of the Year.
The ceremony was April 11 in the University Union. Hehn is among the approximately 200 students that work at least two jobs on campus. Her nominators from the Kress Events Center and the University Union made reference to her work above and beyond, while consistently demonstrating sound judgment and mentoring other staff.
Stearney and Diana Delbecchi, staff member with the Financial Aid and Student Employment Office, presented the awards. In his remarks, Stearney said that evidence shows that student workers on campus do just as well academically, if not better, than their peers, and are retained at a higher rate and more likely to complete their degrees.
Joe Schoenebeck, lab technician, NAS, and a member of the Student Employee Appreciation Committee, introduced the nominees. Kelly Franz, controller, announced Hehn as the year’s winner, on behalf of the Judging Committee.
