Purdue dining court names employees of the month

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Five Purdue University students, all from Indiana, were named student employees of the month at Ford Dining Court.

Ruth Cullen of Lafayette, Kathryn Bird of Indianapolis, Justin Schmitt of Shelbyville, Dan Borne of Fort Wayne and Bryan Lesny of Whiting were honored by supervisors at the dining court.

"These students demonstrated exceptional initiative and hard work," said Barb Maughmer, Ford Dining Court manager. "Without their willingness to serve our guests so diligently, we would not be able to provide the award-winning meal service that we do."

The students were recognized for their exceptional performance during the month of October. Winners are selected from among the hundreds of student employees at dining courts by food staff administrators and student managers. Each winner receives gift certificates for on-campus retail establishments.

Each month, University Residences selects student employees who have contributed to the overall success of the organization and honors them with an employee of the month award. Students are selected based on their employment performance and overall contributions to the organization.
