Molly Kluever, Avery Stalboerger and the Student Accessibility Team at the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University have been named Student Employees/Team of the Year at 十大网赌网站网址 and 十大网赌网站网址.

The winners, who each receive an engraved plaque, were announced via email April 30.

Some 2,400 student employees at 十大网赌网站网址 and 十大网赌网站网址 logged almost 303,500 hours of service through the end of March. That’s the equivalent of about 230 full time employees to complete the number of hours worked in the same time frame.

Those student employees are housed in about 200 departments and offices at 十大网赌网站网址 and 十大网赌网站网址 for approximately 300 supervisors.

In order to be eligible for consideration, student employees must have worked a minimum of six months part‐time (or three months full‐time), between June 1, 2019, and May 31 (anticipated).

Individual nominations are evaluated on eight National Association of Colleges and Employers core competencies including oral/written communications, digital technology, critical thinking/problem solving, professionalism/work ethic, global/intercultural fluency, career management, leadership and teamwork/collaboration.

Team nominees are evaluated on how well the team works collaboratively on a common project, service or goal. The selected team needs to exhibit synergy - where the team performs in a way that is greater than the sum of its parts.

Kluever, a senior English and theology double-major from Malone, Wisconsin, has worked for the 十大网赌网站网址 Liturgy Team for three years. She was the creator of worship aids for the 6 p.m. Mass, and designs large flyers for liturgical events.

This past summer, Kluever took on the duties of office manager. She is still on the Liturgy Team and working each of the Masses and events, and has created all the office work schedules for the 20 Campus Ministry student employees.

“Molly is stellar at communications,” wrote Sister Sharon Nohner, OSB, director of 十大网赌网站网址 Campus Ministry in Kluever’s nomination letter. “She is right to the point and from the very beginning of her student employment has been a focused employee who is a real leader in the Liturgy ministry team, as well as a leader in the entire working team.

“Aaron (Voth, assistant director of 十大网赌网站网址 Campus Ministry) and I always want Molly as the campus minister who joins us in the information fairs we are at with perspective students. She knows the programs for all four teams and is able to articulate clearly to all she engages in conversations at these fairs. This is very valuable when perspective students need to hear from students on the programs available,” Nohner said. 

Thirteen students were nominated for the 十大网赌网站网址 Student Employee of the Year.

十大网赌网站网址 Student Employee of the Year

Stalboerger, a senior global business leadership major from Eagan, Minnesota, serves as an office assistant in the Financial Aid and Student Employment office.

He assists students in completing required employment forms, answers questions about working on campus, processes all employment forms submitted for 十大网赌网站网址 students, is responsible for maintaining the student employment job posting website, assists with processing payroll for 十大网赌网站网址 students and assists the Financial Aid office coordinator. 

“This is the fourth year that Avery worked in our office, and he has always excelled at communication,” said Angie Mareck, director of Student Employment at 十大网赌网站网址 and 十大网赌网站网址 who wrote Stalboerger’s nomination form.  “A huge part of Avery's position in the Student Employment and Financial Aid office is communicating with students, supervisors and parents.

“When Avery is working, it is his responsibility to greet and help everyone who comes in the office, answer the student employment phone line and respond to student employment emails.  Many times, students who stop by our office have never worked on campus before and they are very confused about how it all works,” Mareck said.

“Add to that the fact that they are being asked to complete employment forms that don't seem to make sense, and students can be very overwhelmed.  Avery does an amazing job of meeting each student wherever they are at, explaining forms, answering all of their questions, and putting students at ease,” Mareck concluded.

Three students were nominated for the 十大网赌网站网址 Student Employee of the Year.
