Nina Schenk is a senior biological anthropology major, the Dux Leadership Center Marketing Director, and the November University Unions Student Employee of the Month! Other than being an essential component to Dux marketing team, Nina is also an exemplary employee who shows leadership and initiative in all aspects of her job at Dux. Her efforts have really made a difference in getting students notified and informed about their programs as well as what they do.
In her own role alone, Nina has been enthusiastic and creative in her efforts to make social media campaigns for all of Dux fall programs this past semester. However, another reason Nina is receiving this award because of her special efforts in her job, specifically when she took over tasks when a professional staff member had to be out of the office for a few weeks!
Her supervisor, Renee Reed, the Dux Leadership Programs Support Specialist, says she “stepped up to take care of loose ends” and “provided excellent customer service and marketing support to everyone in the [Dux].”
Her extra effort and leadership during this time is what makes her an employee who really goes above and beyond in not only her own tasks, but in the workplace as a whole.
On top of all of her work at Dux, Nina is also in the Honors College, and has leadership positions throughout campus. Specifically, she is a hall director at Ashby Hall, and has an officer position on the show choir group The Madisonians.
A big thank you to Nina for everything she does for Dux and University Unions as a whole!
