CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., July 5, 2007 — The Department of Recreation Services at Southeast Missouri State University has named Ryan Keith, a senior from St. Louis, Recreation Services Employee of the Month for June.

Keith is currently a facility supervisor with the department. This is the second time he has been honored with this award after previously receiving it in November 2005.

Keith was honored for his work in maintaining facility operations in both the Student Recreation Center-North and the Student Recreation Center-South.

“Keith continually goes out of his way to organize and maintain equipment inventories, opening and closing the facility, and helping out without being asked,” said Troy Vaughn, director of Recreation Services.

Keith is active with the Southeast Climbing Club and enjoys working with Student Recreation Center patrons who use the Recreation Services climbing wall in the east gymnasium. A secondary education major in mathematics, Keith hopes to continue his education by pursuing a master’s degree, and to eventually teach youth.

The Employee of the Month award is given to student employees working with the Department of Recreation Services at Southeast. The award recognizes outstanding achievement with student employees and their ability to go beyond normal duties.
