A University of Montana Dining Services student employee recently received a regional award for her outstanding work performance.
Jessica Maytum, who also was named UDS’ Student Employee of the Year, received the 2012 Sam Brooks Student Employee of the Year award for the Continental Region of the National Association of College and University Food Services. She is a senior from Chester, Calif., majoring in English.
Maytum earned the award, given annually to an exemplary food-service student employee from a regional institution, for her work and leadership at UM Concessions and the Cascade Country Store. She will receive a $500 scholarship provided by the Sam Brooks Scholarship Fund.
“Once again, an outstanding UDS student employee has advanced to the NACUFS National Student Employee of the Year competition,” said Mark LoParco, UDS director. “We are very proud of Jessica and her accomplishments and wish her well as she competes with the other fine students for the top honor.”
A panel headed by the association’s past president will select a national winner from the six regional finalists in early July. The national winner will receive a $5,000 scholarship.
