Daniel Galvan, a senior majoring in Sociology and minoring in Spanish, was recently selected as Cal Poly’s 2011-12 Outstanding Student Employee of the Year. Galvan, originally from Riverside, Calif., was unanimously selected from 36 student nominees. He was the year's most highly recommended candidate, and those who recommended him for the award said he is a well-respected leader who inspires those around him and provides outstanding services to his department. Galvan’s nomination also won recognition in the regional and state competitions sponsored by the Western Association of Student Employment Administrators (WASEA). This is the second consecutive year Cal Poly’s outstanding student employee also won both state and regional awards. Galvan and Cal Poly's other 35 outstanding student employee nominees were recognized at a reception April 12 (during National Student Employment Week) at the Albert B. Smith Alumni and Conference Center on campus. During the reception, Galvan was congratulated by Cal Poly President Jeffrey D. Armstrong and by Jackie Biron, a representative from WASEA. He received a framed certificate of appreciation and a plaque from WASEA recognizing him as the 2011-12 Northern California Student Employee of the Year and WASEA’s regional 2011-12 Student Employee of the Year.
