ian-hznidoThe staff of the Office of Information Technology would like to congratulate

Ian Hnizdo

Student Worker of the Month for November 2016

Ian works as a Telephone Services Assistant and Lab Consultant in the Office of Information Technology. A member of the Class of 2018, Ian is working toward his Bachelor of Arts degree in Environmental Studies.

At Adelphi, Ian is part of several student organizations: GAMES (Gamers and Artists Making Epic Software), Chemistry Club, Debate Society. He also volunteers at the Garden City Bird Sanctuary.

I have known and observed Ian during the summer and the better part of the Fall semester in the dual positions of Telephone Services Student and Student Lab Consultant. Within this short time he has demonstrated great focus, an impressive work ethic and a strong willfulness for cross training within the department. He has excelled at all the tasks in both roles by assisting students in the lab, excellent customer services telephonic skills as well as random general duties given to him. Personally, he is perceived as having a high degree of integrity, responsibility, and ambition. He is the first to pitch-in and absorb shifts when the Telephone Services schedule does not have coverage.”

“Ian joined the Help Desk team in the summer of 2016. He is always enthusiastic and eager to learn. Ian works both in telephone services and as a lab consultant at the IT Help Desk. He has stepped up several times this semester to cover open shifts and continues to provide exceptional customer service.”
