Johns Hopkins Student Employer of the Year
Glenn Small, assistant director of news and information on the Homewood campus of the Johns Hopkins University, has been named the university's student employer of the year.
Small was honored at a ceremony on April 7 on the university's Homewood campus as part of National Student Employee Appreciation Week, which aims to enhance awareness of student employment and the important role it plays in higher education. On the Homewood campus, approximately 3,950 undergraduate and graduate students help keep university offices, programs and departments running smoothly.
Small was nominated for employer of the year by writing intern Jessica Valdez, a student worker in the Office of News and Information. "Glenn makes my job fun to do," Valdez said at the ceremony. "He concentrates on helping us learn new skills and always offers positive feedback, and I really need that as a budding journalist."
Echoing her sentiment was Ruthie Aslan, the Johns Hopkins student employee of the year, who also is supervised by Small. "Glenn Small didn't get the employer of the year award for nothing," Aslan said. "He made my job easy and fun to do, and if it wasn't for him, my job wouldn't even be there. So I'm very happy right now."
Aslan and Small were among the 31 students and 24 employers nominated for this year's awards. Aslan, a senior majoring in film and media studies, was also named Maryland student employee of the year by the Northeast Association of Student Employment Administrators. As the state winner, Aslan will advance to the regional competition, which leads to the national level. This year is the second year in a row that a Johns Hopkins student employee of the year has also won the Maryland contest.
Small lives in Charles Village. Digital color photos of Aslan and Small are available by contacting Amy Cowles at 410-516-7160 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
