Rec. Services Names Employee of the Month

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., Jan. 18, 2011 — Recreation Services at Southeast Missouri State University has named Samantha Espiricueta, a senior from Cape Girardeau, as its December 2010 Employee of the Month.

Espiricueta, a lifeguard on staff, was nominated for her work above and beyond her normal duties as a lifeguard.

Espiricueta is a double major in studio-art and general studies and is an aspiring track and field coach. As a member of the Southeast Missouri State University track team and while in season, she keeps a constant work schedule in the Student Aquatic Center. Recently, Espiricueta assisted in painting the trunk of one of the poles in the Student Aquatic Center to look realistic. Several patrons have also made comments about her professionalism and abilities as a lifeguard.

Recreation Services is proud to congratulate Espiricueta on this accomplishment.

The Recreation Services Student Employee of the Month is the highest achievement award given to a Recreation Services student employee for going “above and beyond” the normal call of duty to assist the program, patrons and users of Southeast’s recreational facilities.
