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!
