Marcus Moore named 2017-18 UM Student Employee of the Year

Senior communication studies major Marcus Moore was recently honored with the University of Montevallo Student Employee of the Year Award. 

This annual recognition is given by the UM Office of Student Employment and UM’s Chapter of the National Alumni Association (UMNAA) to one UM student employee who exhibits outstanding commitment and dedication to their position. 

Moore currently serves the Admissions Office as lead maven, providing campus tours to prospective and incoming Montevallo falcons. 

According to Haley Smith, admissions counselor and Moore’s nominator, he has an uncanny ability to bond and relate to any family or student touring the campus.  

“I can’t remember a time where a family did not compliment his inviting personality and abundant knowledge of our campus and different academic departments,” said Smith. “He strives to make sure each tour is personalized to the prospective family and never falters when it comes to having a positive and sincere attitude.” 

Smith additionally commented on Moore’s willingness to lend a hand in the admissions office, even on his off days. It’s not uncommon for him to drop by just to greet the staff and always makes a point of asking if there is anything he can help with.  

“I am so thrilled and honored to be awarded with this achievement and would like to send a huge thank you to the office of Undergraduate Admissions for the wonderful opportunity to hold my position as a Maven,” said Moore.  

Beyond being a student employee, Moore is actively involved with UM’s Campus Ministry Association and Gold Side.  Moore was officially recognized for this achievement at a luncheon on Thursday, April 12, with a plaque and $500 check provided by the UMNAA.
