K-State Libraries Student Employee of the Month

K-State Libraries employ approximately 60 part-times students each year. These students are commited to our success, and we couldn’t run the Libraries without them. With this award we want to acknowledge and honor our dedicated student employees serving in the Libraries.

If you have an outstanding student we encourage you to nominate them for this award.

The winner will receive a framed certificate and small gift.

Nominations are accepted the 1st of each month through the end of the month. No late nominations will be accepted.

This Month's Winner

Tori Vontz, Access Services/Reserves in the Undergraduate and Community Services Department (UCS), is the July Student Employee of the Month. Tori has been working in Access Services/Reserves for a little over a year.

According to her nominator, Tori has always exceeded expectations with each project that she has completed. Tori is focused, conscientious, and hard-working.  She was able to complete an inventory project that no other student completed in the previous 3 years.  

"Most recently, I asked her to work on a project determining web-based streaming movie sites. I gave her a minimal skeleton of information and she gave me back an awesome report. She used critical thinking in determining what sites would be good, respectable sites and shared her concerns about the free sites and the amount of pop-up ads that could lead to computer viruses - an aspect I had not even thought about!"  

"She color-coded aspects of the excel spreadsheet to make it easier for me to read, again something above what I was expecting. Not only was the project completed but it was completed with value added from the original request.  This is only one example of Tori's exceptional work; she is one of the student workers that you wish you could clone! Tori is a great asset to the UCS Department!"

Congratulations Tori!
