Borner Named Mount Union Student Employee of the Year
April 20, 2010
Mount Union College senior Theresa Borner was recently named the 2010 Student Employee of the Year.
The Office of Academic Affairs nominated Borner, an accounting major from Salem, OH for her hard work and reliability. She has been a valued and trusted student employee since the spring of 2007.
“She is willing to rearrange her work schedule to help out with a project, offers to come in extra or stay longer to help get the job done. With Theresa, there is no doubt that if she is needed, she is there to help in any capacity,” said Melissa Scott, secretary to academic affairs administration and Dean’s Academic Council.
The office nominated her for her hard work and reliability
Borner completes office tasks quickly and accurately, and she is very professional in nature. Her duties include training new student workers, working with the office database, assisting other office members with various tasks, answering phones and taking messages and handling confidential material. The office has awarded her the title of ‘lead’ worker for her strong work ethic.
“Theresa is not only the fastest worker to complete a task, but the quality and accuracy in her speed is astonishing,” added Scott. “She is not one to sit idly by and wait for work to come to her. She is a go getter in the sense that she will ask for work. If she completes a task, she always asks all members of the office if there is anything she can help them with.”
Each year, Mount Union recognizes the efforts of students employed through the Mount Union student employment programs. On an annual basis, Mount Union employs over 1,000 students. These students make tremendous contributions to the College's goal of meaningful work, fulfilling lives and responsible citizenship.
Departments on campus and community service agencies that employ Mount Union students were encouraged to nominate exceptional employees who significantly contribute to Mount Union or agency. Selection criteria for nominated employees are based on reliability, quality of work, initiative, professionalism and uniqueness of contribution.
