Congratulations to our Student Employee of the Year Recipients: A’reona Howard from The Grand Rapids Children’s Museum (Honorable Mention) and Tracey Lacey from the Cashier’s Office (Winner)! Below is an excerpt from each’s Nomination Letter along with a photo of each from our Student Employee of the Year Luncheon which took place on April 12, 2013.
A’reona is an essential member of our team here at the Grand Rapids Children’s Museum. She is a positive influence on both the children and adults that she interacts with here. All the staff here love her because not only is she hard working but she also makes work enjoyable. Always smiling, laughing, and encouraging kids to be creative, it’s truly an honor to have her be a part of this organization.
Since beginning working in the Cashier’s Office Tracey has definitely gone above and beyond her required responsibilities. She is not afraid to step up and take on a leadership role. She has volunteered to be a student ambassador with SALT. She has truly been an asset to our office and we are so happy to have her apart of our team. I think Tracey should be Student Employee of the Year because she has demonstrated all of the qualities that make her deserving of this award. She is reliable, has good work ethic, motivated, self-starter, and professional. I really hope that she is honored because she truly deserves this recognition!
CONGRATULATIONS TO BOTH OF YOU!!!
