"Scott is incredibly creative. When things were slow in the office for a week or so one time, he invented a computer game to learn vocabulary words in a foreign language that our whole faculty uses.
"’Above and beyond the call of duty’ is Scott DeHart’s middle name. In addition to working in our office, he does things like go to our Majors and Minors Meetings to help us put out refreshments and clean off the tables when meetings are over.
"Scott averages 30 hours a week in our office and is active in many extracurricular activities, and yet his grades never suffer. He is majoring in management with a GPA of 3.93. Scott does everything well."
