Each year, Texas A&M University joins colleges and universities across the country in recognizing the importance of the student employment experience during National Student Employment Week. During this week long celebration, which was held April 8-14, 2018, Texas A&M named a Campus and a Community Student Employee of the Year.

Each student will receive a scholarship from The Association of Former Students.

Rachel Welch, a native of College Station, was honored as Campus Student Employee of the Year. Welch serves as a student assistant in the Office of the Dean of Mays Business School, and has been key to the success of their office for the past several years.

Hadley Griffiths, from Corpus Christi, was recognized as Community Student Employee of the Year. Griffiths works at the First Baptist Church of College Station, where she assists in supporting the classroom teachers as well as the administrative office.

Kyle Dunlop and Jason Edmondson were named recipients of the Class of ’56 Student Employee Endowed Award. The Texas A&M University Class of 1956, on the occasion of their 50th anniversary, established this award to recognize and reward outstanding student workers who have at least two semesters remaining before graduation. Each recipient was awarded a scholarship for the 2018-19 academic year.

Dunlop, originally from Murphy, Texas, is a student assistant for the Campus Programs for Minors office, and Edmondson, a native of Burnet, Texas, is a student assistant in the Borlaug Institute for International Agriculture.
