Markey Named Rec Services Employee of the Month for June


CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., July 11, 2011 — The Department of Recreation Services at Southeast Missouri State University has announced that Katie Markey, a graduate student from Nokomis, Ill., has been named its June 2011 Employee of the Month. 

The Recreation Services Employee of the Month award is the highest honor given to a Department of Recreational 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.

Markey, who works on the Redhawks Kids Camp administrative staff, is an English major with aspirations of teaching creative writing at the university level.

She is “an integral part of camp this summer,” said Troy Vaughn, director of Recreation Services. “Markey has been praised by camp staff for her organizational skills, communication and ability in working with campers and adults.”

This is the second time she has received this honor, as she was named Employee of the Month in June 2010.
