Employee of the Month - December 2014

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

Colton is a friendly, knowledgeable SIUE student and CREC rock wall attendant. He has been involved with the SIUE rock wall since 2010. His first experience climbing outdoors was on an SIUE Outdoor Recreation climbing trip to Jackson Falls. Ever since then, he has been an avid enthusiast for the sport of rock climbing through his work at the rock wall and his involvement with the SIUE student climbing club, Climber’s Anonymous. Colton has been a consistent route setter at the rock wall, and has always been willing to help out with special events such as the Glow Climb, Intramural Boulder Competition, and Family Weekend.

Colton goes above and beyond the requirements of his job. Patrons at the rock wall, whether they are first time climbers or seasoned veterans, are always welcomed and encouraged by Colton. His enthusiasm is contagious. He is looking forward to getting outdoors for more outdoor adventures in Colorado upon graduation.

Last Month's Employee of the Month

Jessica (Jessie to us) is a student employee at the Reception Desk at the Student Fitness Center, and also serves as one of our Climbing Gym Attendants in the Rock Wall. She has been employed with Campus Recreation since May of 2012. Her Major is Accounting, with a Minor in Pre-Law, and has a projected graduation date of December 2015. Her future goal is to be employed in Forensic Accounting.

Jessie is very conscientious and friendly and takes her role and duties as a student worker very seriously. She is very dependable and cooperative and goes over and above her expected duties. If there is a last minute shift opening at the Reception Desk, Jessie has always filled in that position willingly and with no complaints. She does the same in the Climbing Gym area. Jessie is a member of the SIUE Accounting Club and also volunteers for the Edwardsville High School Wrestling Club.

During her free time Jessie loves hanging out with her family and friends, especially with her Mom at the Student Fitness Center and many other places. She also likes to shop and is currently taking cake decorating classes. (with her Mom as well!) As you can see, Jessie is a much deserving recipient of the November 2014 Campus Recreation Employee of the Month.
