Employee of the Month - March 2015

Click here to see an archive of previous Employees of the Month.

Phil York has shown his value as a Campus Recreation Student Employee both behind the reception desk and atop the lifeguard stand.

It is easy to foretell that Phil's team player ethics and desire to climb high on rocks or otherwise will take him far beyond his Criminal Justice Bachelor's degree and up into the seat behind the President's desk in the Oval Office.

During Phil's two-year tenure with SIUE's Campus Recreation Department he has shown his caliber by gladly helping his fellow co-workers, readily offering a smile to all whom he meets, and gleefully sharing jokes with all who spend a moment with him. Phil will openly share that, as much as he thoroughly values his education here at SIUE, his "biceps are importanter."

Last Month's Employee of the Month

I have had the pleasure of working with Tom Hantak since August of 2013, when he was hired for Equipment Issue. Tom enthusiasm, reliability and able student leader soon stood out. Tom has progressed well within our department he is always eager to learn new skills and take on additional job responsibilities. He now works at our Reception Desk as well as special events such as, Commencement, Cougar World games and others occurrences held at our facility.

It is apparent that Tom is a leader not only at his position at Campus Recreation he does Peer-Led Team Learning, Campus Crusaded of Christ, volunteer for Junior Achievement and for General Chemistry classes. Some of Tom’s accomplishments are the SIUE Dean’s List and he is a Cougar Pride Scholarship recipient. Tom has certainly proven to us that he has the true SIUe Cougar spirt!
