So much of what happens to make REL into the wonderful department that it is happens because of our hardworking main office staff. The videos, the buttons, the events, and all the other things that make this department such a joy to be part of couldn’t happen without our student workers. Yesterday, one of those student workers finally got the recognition he deserves. Jared Powell, an REL major, a graduating senior, a future MA student in English, and a man who knows the value of well-ironed pants, was recognized as a nominee at this year’s Student Employee of the Year Awards luncheon. Why was Jared nominated, you might ask? Well, our department’s Administrative Secretary, Betty Dickey, said it best:
For his part, Jared did his best to look good for the occasion.
Congratulations, Jared! Thank you for everything you’ve done for this department!
