Berger Named UMass Student Employee of the Year

In a ceremony that included Chancellor Kumble Subbaswamy and Provost James Staros, Ashley Berger '13 (Legal Studies/History) was awarded the 2012-2013 Gerald F. Scanlon Student Employee of the Year citation. Berger is one of only ten students campus-wide to receive this award.

"It is truly an honor to win this award out of so many students who work on this campus," said Berger. "I love working in the Political Science and Legal Studies department; it has given me so many great opportunities to meet faculty and students!"

At the ceremony, Berger received a certificate from the Chancellor and she will also receive a cash award for her accomplishment.

The intent of the Gerald F. Scanlon Student Employee of the Year Award is to recognize and honor students who have demonstrated exceptional performance by contributing their time and/or skills to help the university achieve its goals and objectives.  Berger was recognized for her years of her outstanding service to the Department as an undergraduate assistant and peer advisor.
