National Student Employment Week 2020

Each year colleges and universities across the country recognize the importance of the student work experience during National Student Employment Week. On our campus, student employees perform invaluable services with enthusiasm, dedication, and initiative. We depend on the contributions of a reliable student workforce for the efficient operation of our campus.

Student Employment Services and the Center for Career Engagement are excited to announce Ingrid Bayer '22 as Gettysburg College's Student Employee of the Year.

Ingrid Bayer

Ingrid Bayer '22- Garthwait Leadership Center

“Recognizing the hidden gem amongst a campus of stars - conventionally the light shines on the stars in the forefront but what about promoting the hidden talents of those behind the cloud of stars. Those who are quietly helping to boost the department. The hidden gem, one of our best talents, is often hidden out of sight or quietly on the sidelines. This humble worker, whose actions alter the course of the GLC, has become indispensable. I believe that Ingrid has the professional make up; the fabric of a true leader!” Nominated by Denise Shaffer

Diana Farina

Diana Farina '21- Honorable Mention

“Diana's work ethic and professionalism skills are the best of the best. No one is more reliable than student; she is always there when she says she'll be there, and she consistently provides friendly, competent help to patrons.” Nominated by Betsy Bein

Ana Vashakmadze

Ana Vashakmadze '22- Honorable Mention

“Ana is a true leader and problem solver.” Nominated by Shelley Stoner.

“Ana is a pillar of professionalism. Rarely have I seen such excellence in interacting with the various constituencies that come through our office. She takes the initiative to learn new skills and apply them and is not afraid to ask questions.” Nominated by Rebecca Barth

Nataelle Pitts

Nataelle Pitts '22- Honorable Mention

“One of Nataelle’s greatest strengths is that she is always willing to go above and beyond. When there is an opportunity for her to grow, she takes it. Nataelle has strong leadership and interpersonal skills. She takes initiative and is not afraid to take on new challenges. When she gets assigned to a project, she follows through and asks questions.” Nominated by Marcela Manzo Vessi

Emma Lewis

Emma Lewis '20- Honorable Mention

“Emma has shown tremendous personal, academic, and professional growth in the 3 years that she has worked for me, and always finds a way to surprise me with something new that she has come up with, whether it's something she has done on her own, or a project or assignment that I have given her to accomplish.” Nominated by R.C. Miessler

Congratulations to all of our nominees! Keep being Gettysburg Great!
