Student Employee of the Year
Nominated for his work with the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) lab, Deck earned praise for the quality of his work and the speed at which he completes tasks. Deck goes above and beyond, not just completing projects but seeking ways to improve their effectiveness. Andrew Wright, Deck’s nominating supervisor, noted, “When presented with a project that works adequately, but not as well as it could, his first impulse is always to approach the staff person in charge and outline his ideas for improving it.”
Deck’s contributions in the GIS lab vary and include everything from database management to PHP coding. “His versatility and drive have been invaluable in the lab,” said Wright.
In addition to his work with GIS, Deck works as a web development intern with College Relations and Marketing and has served as president of the Bowling Club and German Club on campus.
