Honor the Best Website
Quentin Burgess—Student Employee of the Year
Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology
The Student Employee of the Year award honors a student employee for their extraordinary contribution to the University through outstanding job performance.
“Quentin has received overwhelming support and high recommendations from faculty members, staff, and others who have worked closely with him. These accolades come from those at the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology, as well as other geological organizations in the community. Quentin’s commitment, kindness, enthusiasm, and passion for his chosen career path in the geological sciences have inspired and impressed those around him. His dedication to his job, work ethic, and delightful personality have greatly enhanced the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology over the three and half years he has worked with them. Quentin received the Nevada Undergraduate Research Award in 2019, co-authored a publication with Dr. Cao [DGSE] and presented his research at the American Geophysical Union national meeting last year. In addition, Quentin designed and built a website with a student chapter of the American Institute of Professional Geologists.”
Since Quentin and the other faculty, staff, and students could not be celebrated at the annual awards dinner, UNR has established a website honoring these wonderful employees.
