Nomination submitted by Kirby Underwood, Chemistry Department.
Nathan Northern has been working in the chemistry lab since 2014 preparing apparatus and chemicals for appropriate use in general chemistry teaching labs and chemical demonstrations. He has assumed a leadership role by training and mentoring new employees in the lab, served as a role model for the other students to push themselves to learn and excel, and made himself available to respond to other employees’ questions.
Nathan led discussions on process improvements and demonstrated initiative by taking safety and other pertinent training modules prior to being asked. He is always ahead of schedule on tasks and immediately begins planning the next task.
The contributions Nathan has made to the chemistry lab will have positive implications for years to come.
Special thanks to this year’s selection committee:
- Seth Bauguess, Director of Communications;
- Jennifer Turpin, Assistant Director, Fitness and Wellness Campus Recreation;
- Harolyn Williams, Academic Advisor, Pre-Health.
Congratulations to all nominees and thanks to all the supervisors who took the time to nominate their exceptional student employees.
