Student-employee winner — Rae Richards, Training and Development student coordinator for the College Assistance Migrant Program
Nominated by Evelynn Guzman de Leon, M.Ed., director of CAMP, who wrote:
“I have had the pleasure of supervising amazing student employees for over seven years at MSU Denver, but I have to say Rae is a unicorn.
“Rae was a CAMP scholar their first year and now serves in the role of student coordinator for Training and Development for CAMP, a role in which they go above and beyond to support our team. I am immensely grateful for their thoroughness, thoughtfulness and, most important, their passion for guiding our staff toward professional and personal growth by creating thoughtful training and reflection opportunities for us all. I am also grateful for them always keeping me on my toes and reminding me of things I said I would get done but have not done.
“I sincerely enjoy working with Rae, because no matter their personal struggles on any particular day, they come into work and make the place shine with their personality, passion, kindness and high spirits and make sure that the office works like a well-oiled machine! Thank you, Rae, for all that you do for CAMP. I have so much respect and admiration for you, and I know soon you’ll be graduating and moving on to do amazing things in your career as well.”
