UGA to recognize student employees

Athens, Georgia – The University of Georgia Career Center will honor more than 100 student workers and their departmental nominators during a luncheon on April 10 as a part of UGA’s observance of National Student Employment Week, April 8-15.

During the luncheon, the Career Center will recognize UGA’s Student Employee of the Year, as well as first and second runners-up. The winner of this honor will represent UGA in the Southern Association of Student Employment Administrators regional competition. The regional winner will be awarded cash prizes and be given the chance to compete for the title of National Student Employee of the Year.

“Let’s show all of our student workers at UGA that their work is valued and their many contributions are appreciated,” said Scott Williams, executive director of the UGA Career Center. “Join us as we celebrate National Student Employment Week.”

During the week, Williams said, “Please take time to show your appreciation by planning rewarding activities for your student workers. You may want to consider offering a pizza lunch, coupons for special services or special events, movie tickets or displaying the student’s name and picture on a colorful board in the department.”
