The Fall 2011 Beth Maloan Outstanding UT Martin Student Employee Award recently was presented to Hannah Paige Stewart, undergraduate faculty assistant who is a native of Newbern.
She is a junior communications major and has been employed for 11⁄2 years at the Margaret N. Perry Children’s Center.
Ms. Stewart works as part of a teaching team in a preschool classroom, where she is responsible for planning and implementing activities, supervising the classroom and outside play area, being a positive role model for the children and practicum teachers and greeting parents and keeping them informed about their child’s daily performance.
“Hannah is one of those people that can make a dull day brighter. She has such a positive attitude and is always willing to help,” said Leanne Snider, her supervisor. “She is very trustworthy and respectful of our children and their families. I can always count on Hannah to go above and beyond what is expected and without constant reminders.”
The award, given every fall and spring semester, is a memorial for Beth Maloan, longtime UT Martin director of budgeting and payroll, who during her years of service, was a strong advocate for student employment. Mrs. Maloan had a vision that more positions would be developed on campus that would challenge students and make them significant contributors to the university’s mission.
Recipients of the award exemplify a strong work ethic and commitment to the university and they receive a $1,000 cash award, an engraved plaque and a nameplate on the perpetual plaque in a place of honor in Boling University Center.
Contributions to the scholarship award may be made through payroll deduction by employees of UT Martin or by sending a contribution to the Office of Development at UT Martin.
