Friends and colleagues of Hugh Scott say that the senior public health studies major lights up a room with his charm and spirit. Since his freshman year, Scott has worked at the university's Career Center, where, according to co-workers, he practices service with an infectious smile.

Scott and friends were certainly all smiles when he was named Student Employee of the Year at a ceremony held April 6 in Homewood's Glass Pavilion. He received a $500 savings bond and various other prizes in recognition of his outstanding service to the Career Center, where he now fills a senior guidance role to the center's new student employees—several of whom nominated Scott.

Earlier in the day, Scott was also named the Maryland Student Employee of the Year and will now be entered in the regional competition.

The honors continued for the Career Center, which also won a group recognition award.

JHU's 15th annual Student Employee of the Year ceremony was part of National Student Employee Appreciation Week, which aims to enhance awareness of student employment and the important role it plays in higher education. At Johns Hopkins, students fill more than 4,200 vital positions in the university's various offices, labs and centers.

In all, 29 students and 19 employers were nominated for this year's individual awards. Each nominee received a certificate and a commemorative T-shirt.

The JHU Employer of the Year for 2006 was Agnes Flannery-Denner, who works in the Milton S. Eisenhower Library's Circulation Department.

Carolyn Dinsmore earned a second place Student Employee of the Year award for her work at the Department of Athletics and Recreation. Stephen Barolak from IT@JH's Student Information Services took third place. Emily Kumpel, who works for the Department of Athletics and Recreation, placed fourth.

In the Employer of the Year category, second place went to Todd Bullock, who works in SPSBE's Office of Finance and Administration. Cheryl Janowsky from the Career Center came in third, and fourth place went to the Department of Athletics and Recreation's Anne Irwin.

Other group awards went to the Department of Athletics and Recreation's O'Connor Center building managers; the Counseling Center; the Mathematics Department; MSEL's Research Services and Collections; the Office of Recreation; and Security, Parking and Transportation.
