Hosking is Student Employee of the Year
Jeremy Hosking, a senior political science and history major from Palmer, is the NMU Student Employee of the Year. He works as a clerical assistant for the combined departments of economics, history, philosophy and political science.
“He greets all guests with a smile and goes above and beyond to help solve any problems they may have," wrote his supervisor April Bertucci in nominating him for the award. "You do not need to motivate Jeremy; he looks for work and completes jobs quickly and efficiently. Jeremy takes pride in his work, giving his best at all times.
"He is a very conscientious person. He contacts us even on his days off, asking if we need any help or making sure a project was completed. … As a great example of how reliable Jeremy is, the student employee handbook he created states, ‘On time is defined as five minutes before your shift is to commence.’”
The two runners-up for the honor were: Kendall Sutliff, a senior marketing major from Gillett, Wis., who is a marketing assistant in the communications and marketing office; and Amanda Rosenburg, a senior psychology major from Iron Mountain, who works as a clerical assistant in the psychology department.
All three are invited to the Student Employee of the Year Luncheon on Thursday, April 12. Hosking will receive a plaque, a $25 gift certificate to the restaurant of his choice and a $25 check. Sutliff and Rosenburg will receive certificates.
April 9-13 has been designated National Student Employment Week. The event is celebrated on campuses across the nation and serves as an opportunity to enhance awareness of student employment and its important role in the higher education experience. On-campus employers are encouraged to recognize the work done by their student employees. A list of recognition ideas is available on the JOBSearch Center Web site.
