Student of the Month

Congratulations to Food Service worker Samantha Parrish.

Parish has been employed with Food Service for 3 ½ years as a morning omelet cook, cashier, salad bar attendant, deli attendant, Cougar Café attendant and a dishwasher. “Her ability to adapt to a new position quickly has made her an asset to our department,” says Mark Althaus, Cafeteria Director for Campus Food Service. “Samantha has shown outstanding leadership during her employment with us through training new employees, leading by example and educating new employees regarding the requirements of their positions.”

Parrish has a positive attitude and great customer service skills. She’s also earned a reputation for making delicious omelets - so much so that her fellow students request that she make their breakfasts.

“In closing, Samantha is an asset to our department, and we will all be sad - yet happy - to see her graduate,” Althaus says. “As she enters the work force after graduation, she will be one of the most memorable outstanding student employees, and I would not hesitate to highly recommend her to any future potential employer.”
