The second annual Student Employee of the Year Reception was held on April 12 in the Hospitality Center on campus.

Twenty-four dedicated, hardworking SNHU student workers were nominated for Student Employee of the Year and honored at the reception along with their managers and supervisors.

The National Association of Student Employment Administrators (NSEA) designated the second week of April as Student Employment Appreciation Week. NSEA provides a selection process in which supervisors can nominate student workers for consideration for the Student Employee of the Year honor.

Mary Young, SNHU Work-Study Coordinator, explains, “The purpose [of this week] is to enhance awareness of student employment, recognize students who perform outstanding work while attending college, and thank employers, who hire students and make the program a success.”

The SNHU Student Employee of the Year for 2017 is Chelsea Robinson, nominated by James Gassman. Robinson is an Equipment and Events Supervisor for the Athletic Department. For this role, Robinson assists with the Athletic Complex’s day to day operations, manages home athletic contests and trains new student workers.

NSEA also provides a selection process in which winning Student Employees of the Year are sent in for state consideration. The state winner is considered for regional the title, and the regional winner advances for national consideration. Robinson also won the honor of being named the State of New Hampshire Student Employee of the Year. Congratulations Chelsea!
