We’re excited to share that Jaqueline (Jackie) Chavarria has been awarded the Gary L. Belleville Critical Thinking Student Employee of the Year Award for 2023-24! 

Jackie works at the Lee Honors College as a student receptionist and is a junior double majoring in Criminal Justice and Psychology. Jackie was nominated for this award by her supervisor, LHC executive assistant Jennifer Townsend. 

When presenting the award, Amanda Jeppeson, Student Employment Specialist at WMU, shared that Jackie really impressed the judges with how well she’s managed communication within her staff team and disseminated information in a meaningful way to make the Lee Honors College a great place for Honors Broncos. 

As a winning student for this academic year, Jackie’s name will be forwarded to a competition through the Midwest Association of Student Employment Administrators (MASEA) later this spring. Congratulations to Jackie on this well-deserved honor!
