Trevor Scherlin of Casper, a senior in economics and finance with a minor in German, has been chosen as the University of Wyoming’s Student Employee of the Year.

An office aide with UW Student Educational Opportunity (SEO), Scherlin was chosen based on his reliability, initiative, uniqueness of contribution, quality of work, professionalism, and community and campus service. A committee representing various campus departments judged the nominations.

Sarah Myers of Walden, Colo., a laboratory aide for the Department of Veterinary Sciences majoring in animal and veterinary science, placed second, and Randy Layton of Cheyenne, a mechanical engineering student working as a front desk assistant/dispatcher for Transit and Parking Services, placed third.

Scherlin received a certificate and cash award for his outstanding service to UW. The competition sponsor, the Western Association of Student Employee Administrators, selected Scherlin as the state’s student employee of the year after he received the UW recognition.

“Trevor is a better worker than most people of any level of experience I’ve worked with,” says his supervisor, Teresa Nealon, an SEO project director. “He's reliable, professional, shows initiative, contributes to the team all the time and produces high-quality work.”

She describes Scherlin as the backbone of SEO’s Challenge Grant program.

“We rely on Trevor for his institutional memory about how we have done things in the past,” Nealon says. “I can rely on him to know the whys and wherefores for a lot of our processes and procedures. He has been a key player in many meetings because he knows the grant awards process intimately.”

The team’s main function is helping low-income and first-generation students prepare for and choose colleges. Most members of the team, known as WYCAC, are advisers who work in high schools across the state. Scherlin planned the itinerary for a statewide community college tour, booking motels and college vehicles, among other assignments.

"Trevor is always looking for ways to help all of the college advisers,” says Brandi Ingersoll, Wyoming College Advising Corps (WYCAC) adviser. “He really goes above and beyond in everything he does and is always looking for ways to expand his support position.”

WYCAC adviser Kathryn Master adds, “He is very easy to work with. Trevor’s knowledge of the program is unsurpassed. He is the consistency in a program that is ever changing, and we all rely on his depth of historical knowledge and expertise.”
