Manocchio, a writing major of Mentor, was recognized for her hard work and dedication as a student supervisor in the Office of Intramural and Recreation Programs. She was nominated by her supervisor, Marcus Lambdin, head wrestling coach and coordinator for intramural and recreation programs.
'We have a great staff and excellent offerings that are made possible through the dedicated work done to a level that only the most passionate person could even imagine,' said Lambdin. 'That person is Mandy Manocchio.'
'My job on campus really had a very positive effect on the academic, personal and professional aspects of my life,' said Manocchio. 'I soon found the close connection of succeeding in the classroom and succeeding in the work field.
My job here at Mount Union has provided me with all these wonderful opportunities which I plan to carry on into the work force as I prepare to graduate. Each of these skills will be very beneficial to me as a person and a professional. The skills I have learned, the relationships I have formed and the friendships I have made will carry on with me as a reminder of the positive outcomes of hard work and dedication.'
Departments on campus and community service agencies that employ Mount Union students were encouraged to nominate exceptional employees who significantly contribute to the College or agency.
Selection criteria for nominated employees are based on reliability, quality of work, initiative, and professionalism and uniqueness of contribution.
The award was granted in conjunction with National Student Employment Week April 9-15.
Mount Union seeks to recognize the efforts of students employed through the Mount Union student employment programs. On an annual basis, the College employs over 1,000 students. These students make tremendous contributions to the College's goal of meaningful work, fulfilling lives and responsible citizenship.
