Having worked at the Career Center for more than a year and a half, Systems Administrator Miguel Bernadin, was selected as the winner of the Fall 2009 Traveling Star Award. Sponsored by the Office of Commuter Student Services, the award recognizes the accomplishments of commuter students from various departments around campus who have shown dedication and hard work.
Majoring in Computer Engineering in his senior year, Bernadin is responsible for the management, configuration, and maintenance of various technologies managed by the Career Center. Focusing on maintaining PC’s, software application, servers, and networking equipment, he has always handled every issue with professionalism and enthusiasm. In addition, Bernadin has also conducted presentations to the Career Center staff in regards to handling technical issues.
According to the nomination letter written by Career Center Director Marianna Savoca, “No recommendation would be complete without sharing Miguel Bernadin’s skills, positive, can-do attitude, interest in learning, and willingness to go above and beyond every single day. This makes him an extremely valued member of my team, and I will miss him a great deal when he graduates.”
“I deeply appreciate Marianna Savoca for nominating me for the Traveling Star Award. This would not have been possible if it was not for the Career Center, which enables students to grow professionally in every sense of the word,” said Bernadin.
As the ninth recipient of the award, Bernadin received a plaque and gift certificate to the University Bookstore. A picture of him will also be displayed at the Commuter Commons inside the Student Activities Center for the entire spring semester.
“I will mount this plaque on the wall in my future job to always remind me where I learned what being a professional is all about. I want to say thank you very much because I know this achievement is only made possible by the Career Center,” said Bernadin.
