Gilges, Trisha (Career Center) is Stepping Beyond

“Trisha has worked over the last year to build up a stellar FREE clothing closet for SJSU Students. She reaches out to the campus and wider community for gently used clothing donations or for funds to purchase new clothing which students can shop for free. She’s safely served over 350+ students with free professional attire this past fall ’21 and is excited to see this continue to grow and support even more. Thank you Trisha for leading this initiative to support SJSU students!”

Perez, Paola (Department of Communication Studies) is Stepping Beyond

“Paola worked hard this semester as a co-coordinator for the COMM Twitter page. Not only did she help me take control of the platform, she also came up with a ton of ideas to help boost engagement across the platform. She is an important asset to the social media team, and I am deeply grateful for her. Our platform has grown quite a bit since we started working together, and it’s because of her commitment that we were so successful!”

Anaya, Aggie (University Personnel) is Stepping Beyond

“Aggie successfully coordinated a major move for my unit from one building to another, climbing over obstacle upon obstacle to ensure its success. She kept a positive attitude – as she always does! – and kept me informed throughout the process. She was truly amazing during the whole adventure and while yes, this is part of her job, she went above and beyond to make this one happen, even coming to the office to supervise the moving vendor on the day of the move – which happened on a campus holiday. In short, SHE ROCKS!!”
