She is actively involved in the operation of Time Out, our carry-out service at the Pavilion and has greatly enhanced our mystery shopper scores for this area.  Developing an operation manual for Time Out, motivating student team members, conducting student meetings and never missing a scheduled shift have all contributed to Hannah’s selection as our 2010 Student Employee of the Year.  Hannah will be continuing at MU this fall working toward earning her Doctorate in Physical Therapy.  Hannah’s nomination has also been submitted to the National Association of College and University Foodservices’ Midwest Regional Student Employee of the Year contest and we are waiting to see if she also wins that scholarship.
