OSA designer wins best student employee
At a banquet last uesday, Emily Grigone, a senior rom St. Louis, was honored as the best student employee at the University o Kansas. According to her coworkers, Grigone’s graphic designing or the Oﬃce o Study Abroad (OSA) has helped make the oﬃce and the inormation it releases more appealing.“All she is expected to do is create brochures,” said Grigone’s supervisor Melody Stratton. “She has done a lot more than that. She totally redesigned our newsletters and she voluntarily created a 15-page creative brie to change all o the branding and marketing in our oﬃce.”Grigone, a graphic design major, has helped redesign over 170 diﬀerent study abroad brochures. In addition, she’s redesigned everything the OSA puts out, such as posters and ﬂyers. She’s also advised prospective students and tabled events and airs.Grigone said it’s a great eeling seeing her work around campus and knowing that it might help someone make a decision to study abroad.“Tis award as well as Melody’s constant encouragement has built up my conﬁdence and morale a ton,” Grigone said. “I think it’s really necessary to have that in an oﬃce setting.”Grigone received $500 or winning the award and was also entered in the National Student Employee o the Year competition, coordinated by the National Student Employee Association. Te winner receives a $1,000 prize and will be released later this year. In addition to the check, Emily, as well as the other ﬁnalists, received a solid brass Jayhawk, a Jayhawk pin and a certiﬁcate o recognition.Nominations or the award were taken rom Dec. 1 through Jan. 31. A student, in order to be nominated or the award, must be enrolled at the University, have a minimum 2.5 GPA and must be employed by the same department or at least our months. Te nominations are then reviewed and narrowed down to our ﬁnalists and one winner.Grigone said she was very ﬂattered to hear that she was nominated or the award by her supervisor Stratton.“It was an amazing eeling or sure, having someone express those eelings about yoursel and eeling like I was that important,” she said.Grigone’s co-workers had nothing but praise or her.“Her work gets more people in to see the peer-advisors,” said Grigone’s coworker Courtney Moore, a senior rom Wichita. “She has just been great. She always had a positive attitude and she is just so much un to work with.”Both Stratton and Moore said Grigone never shows any sign o stress and can always be counted on to meet deadlines.“She is never ﬂustered and always calm,” Moore said. “Whenever we are getting close to a deadline I never really eel worried because she always seems to have everything under control.”Grigone said that students can learn just as much, i not more, in an oﬃce setting than by sitting in the classroom.“It’s real work, it’s real world experience,” she said. “I think employers really appreciate it. It will make you better. It will make you work harder and just learn more.”Grigone is currently looking or internships in the Kansas City area and said she then wants to move to the west coast afer the summer.
