Saint Martin's student employee of the year helps residence hall students

Wednesday, May 26, 2004

Lacey, Wash. - Saint Martin’s College has named freshman Cathy Schlader as its Student Employee of the Year for 2004.

The college chooses one student work-study employee each year for the honor, based on contributions to their department, work ethic, attitude, reliability and extraordinary effort.

Schlader, of Boise, Idaho, is one of more than 200 student workers that are crucial to the college’s department in getting their jobs done in the best possible way. Each student worker also helps the offices and departments keep in touch with the reason the college exists - students and their education.

Residence Hall Manager Angelia Johnson nominated Schlader for constantly going out of her way to be helpful to the college’s residential students. When additional student workers were hired to help in the office, she was instrumental in training new members of the team.

“Cathy does all the little things to make this office run smoothly,” Johnson said. “She comes in with a smile and makes even the most mundane tasks fun … Cathy is a true leader.”
