Story posted March 15, 1998


BRUNSWICK, Maine -- Zachary Burke has been named Student Employee of the Year at Bowdoin College.

Burke, a senior from Minneapolis, Minn., is web coordinator in the Office of Communications. As web coordinator, Burke is responsible for creating, managing and updating the College's World Wide Web pages. He has also designed web pages for the Chamber of Commerce of the Bath-Brunswick Region and Harmonic Systems Inc. of Minnesota.

Burke serves as editor-in-chief of the Bowdoin Orient, the student-run campus newspaper, and as a writer and editor for The Quill, Bowdoin's literary journal. Burke is a Dean's List student majoring in anthropology and minoring in French. He is a 1994 graduate of the Saint Paul (Minn.) Academy and Summit School.

"It's extraordinary to find a student who is so dedicated and willing to make what is essentially a professional commitment to a student job," said Scott Hood, associate vice president/director of public affairs, who nominated Burke for the award. "At the same time he is clearly dedicated to his academic and extracurricular work."

A panel of Bowdoin alumni business leaders, students and staff members judged the competition. Students are nominated by their campus supervisors and judged on reliability, quality of work, initiative, disposition and contributions to Bowdoin.

On April 8, Burke will be honored along with other outstanding student employees at a reception in Main Lounge, Moulton Union.

The Student Employee of the Year program is sponsored by the Northeast Association of Student Employment Administrators and includes competition at the campus, state, regional and national levels. At Bowdoin, it is administered by the Office of Student Employment.
