MiraCosta College Chooses Caitlin Clark as Student Worker of the Year

Student Worker of the Year Award 2013

MiraCosta College student Caitlin Clark has been named MiraCosta College’s 2013 Student Worker of the Year. The MiraCosta College Board of Trustees honored Clark at its May 21 meeting. Clark works for the Office of School Relations & Diversity Outreach as a student ambassador, a post she has held for nearly two years. 

“Caitlin produces excellent work that is well thought out and complete. She keeps herself busy with office assignments and finds time to help other ambassadors with their duties in the office, even when she’s not on the clock,” said Clark’s supervisor Aubrey Kuan Roderick.

The job of student ambassador is to represent MiraCosta College in the community, at K12 schools, on campus, and at community events. As the college liaison to Carlsbad High School, Clark works with high school seniors to provide MiraCosta College admissions, testing and transfer information. Student ambassadors also deliver presentations to parents and K12 students and lead campus tours to prospective college enrollees.

“Caitlin is punctual, exceptionally organized, and follows through with her tasks to completion,” said Roderick. “When ambassadors are hesitant to sign up to work program events, it is Caitlin who will step up to help. We can always count on her to get the job done.”

Caitlin is a 2011 graduate of Carlsbad High School. She graduated from MiraCosta College this spring semester and is transferring to SDSU, where she will study business.

“MiraCosta College has truly given me the college experience and the ability to strive to achieve my goals for my future,” said Clark. “The MiraCosta College Student Ambassador Program, Scholarship Program, and Tutoring Services have provided many opportunities to help me be a successful student. Thanks to MiraCosta College I have realized the true goal of college and that is to help all students in planning for their future.”

Other nominees for Student Worker of the Year were Sammy Chaaban, Mandy Frakes, Humberto Garcia, Victoria Hernandez, Danine Jaykus and Lori Smith.
