Cameron Morgan ’19 (T5) and doctoral student Clara Auclair are the University’s 2019 Student Employees of the Year. They were honored April 16 in a ceremony at Rush Rhees Library.

The awards are sponsored by the Student Employment Office and announced during National Student Employment Week. The winners are chosen by a committee of nomination readers representing departments across the University. Eligible students  must have worked at least six months during 2018 and are judged on reliability, quality of work, initiative, and professionalism.

Morgan, a dual major in linguistics and brain and cognitive sciences from Medina, New York, is a speaking fellow in the Writing, Speaking, and Argument Program and also serves as president. He works with students one-on-one in tutoring sessions to help them improve their public speaking, supervises the work of his fellow tutors, leads staff meetings, and sets the schedule.

“He’s always on top of things and has become someone I truly rely on, almost as a partner, in running the center,” says Writing, Speaking, and Argument assistant professor Amy Arbogast, who nominated Morgan.

Auclair is a native of Metz, France, and works as a graduate digitization specialist in the Digital Scholarship Lab at River Campus Libraries, creating digital assets for scholarship, preservation, and the institutional repository. She is a fourth-year student in the Visual and Cultural Studies doctoral program and a graduate of the L. Jeffrey Selznick School for Film Preservation at the George Eastman Museum in Rochester. She received her bachelor’s degree in film studies and French literature and her master’s in film history and aesthetics from Paris Diderot University.

“Clara’s dependability and professional allow the lab to function continuously, even when full-time staff are not present,” says Lisa Wright, the library’s digital scholarship digitization specialist, who nominated Auclair. “Whether working with fellow graduate students or training faculty and staff, Clara provides patient instruction, guidance, and mentorship.”
