BYU honors Student Employee of the Year

Amanda Parrish lso named Utah Student Employee of the Year

Amanda Parrish, an employee at Student Auxiliary Services Creative Marketing, is the 2005 Brigham Young University Student Employee of the Year.

In addition, her nomination was submitted for the state competition, and she was chosen as the State of Utah Student Employee of the Year. Parrish's nomination will now be submitted to the regional competition.

The search for BYU's Student Employee of the Year began Jan. 10, when nominations were submitted by employers to the Student Employee of the Year Committee. There were 101 nominations received from 60 different departments across campus.

Marlin Sharp, Parrish's supervisor, said that he was "lucky enough to have her assigned to us" and that "if we could create a new full-time position in our division, Amanda would be our first pick - bar none." He also says "she exceeds expectations in work assignments and always puts100 percent into her job."

"I have found great mentors from the exceptional full-time staff," said Parrish. "My experiences with working on campus have become a positive influence in my life. I have been able to become involved in many new and exciting projects -- projects that have helped me determine the kind of job I want after graduation."

"I have changed my desired career because of the experiences I had as a student working on campus. But most importantly, when I graduate in April, I will take with me skills and traits I have developed while working on campus - skills and traits that I believe are more important and valuable than a paycheck," she said.

The competition was sponsored by Human Resource Services. For mote information, contact Karen Pingel at (801) 422-8135.
