Nominations Being Accepted for Scanlon Student Employee of the Year Award for 2019-20

UMass Amherst wordmark

The 2019-20 Gerald F. Scanlon Student Employee of the Year committee is seeking nominations for outstanding student employees. Nominations are due by Friday, Feb. 28.

The intent of the award is to recognize and honor students who have demonstrated exceptional performance by contributing their time and skills to help the university achieve its goals and objectives.

Departmental supervisors may nominate any matriculated junior or senior who has been employed by the university for six months or more. Selection criteria include dependability, demonstrated initiative and original contributions to the workplace.

This award is named in the memory of a man who was a staunch supporter of students throughout his 20-plus year tenure with the university. Without student workers, much of the work done by university staff would be difficult to achieve. This award program is a small way for the university to say “thank you” to valuable student employees.

Nomination forms are available online or by contacting TearNee Sodders in the financial aid office at sodders@finaid.umass.eduor 413-545-958.
