FCRR Intern Denis Aleman Recognized as One Of FSU’s Student Employees of the Year Award
Florida Center for Reading Research intern, Denis Aleman, has received the 2019 Florida State University Student Employee of the Year Vires Award. The award, given to the student employee who has gone above and beyond in taking initiative in their role, was presented at a special ceremony held on April 8, 2019, in the Oglesby Union Ballroom. “This award was such a monumental milestone in my academic journey. It’s moments like these that reminds me I’m working in my passion, and that student interns can always make an impact if they work hard,” Aleman stated.
Aleman, a senior psychology major with a minor in Sociology, was selected from a pool of over 100 nominees. His supervisor, Associate in Research Jonathan Klepper stated, “Beginning on his first day, he set himself apart from the other undergraduate employees. His interest in the work of FCRR and the Preschool Research Group, as well as his willingness to learn catapulted him to roles not originally expected for a first-semester intern.”
