Student employee of the year 2019

Please join the office of Student Employment on congratulating Phai Bui, a junior and Walla Walla University’s 2019 Student Employee of the Year. 

Phai will receive a $1300 scholarship which will be presented at The Awards Ceremony in his honor. He was nominated by his supervisor Michael Trethewey in the Grounds Department. Runners-up Sophie Bailey (Marketing and University Relations) and Sarah Halversen (Athletics Department) will receive $700 scholarships.

Phai’s supervisor has this to say about him:

“His quality of work, extreme reliability and natural leadership abilities are so important to The Grounds Department. Phai's leadership style is one of a friend, mentor, and fun guy. He is very careful to not exceed the parameters set for him and assume authority where unfit. And at the same time, he is able to work within his undefined role as a leader with extreme effectiveness. The impact that Phai has made on our department is invaluable.”

“Phai consistently exemplifies to the younger students how to be professional AND have fun at the same time. Phai’s biggest contribution is his leadership.  Phai, being a husband and parent to 2 kids, has a “big brother” aura that exudes confidence and compassion.  He talks a lot and gets the other students to open up, have discussions and feel good about being on GROUNDS crew.  All this morale boosting and comradery is achieved while he leads and directs students how to work, too.”
