This award recognizes the hard work and dedication of the members of the Rollins community who manage student employees.

For her high level of support of students’ personal, academic, and professional development, Sam Justice, assistant director of the Center for Leadership & Community Engagement (CLCE), and Victoria Teske, associate director of CLCE, have earned 2024 Student Employee Supervisor of the Year awards.

Since 2018, the Student Employee Supervisor of the Year award recognizes those who assume the important task of supervising, developing, and mentoring our student employees. These supervisors play a crucial role in providing much-needed support to the offices and departments they serve and ultimately contribute greatly to the success of students both at Rollins and beyond.

Justice’s and Teske’s impact reverberates in the lives of the many students they mentor. Students describe them as leaders whose commitment extends beyond the workplace, continually engaging in one-on-one conversations and offering consistent support and understanding.

“From day one, Sam shows up for his student employees in such meaningful ways,” says a student nominator. “He facilitates participation in conferences and leads the Immersion Planning Team, showcasing his dedication to students’ personal and professional development. Sam’s kindness, humor, and welcoming demeanor leave a lasting impression on his student employees.”

“Victoria’s impact on her student employees’ growth is remarkable,” notes a student nominator. “Her nurturing work environment fosters value and understanding while her empathy helps students navigate challenges with resilience. Victoria is a role model to her students, pushing them beyond their comfort zone, emphasizing professionalism, teamwork, and effective communication as well as networking opportunities and career advice.”
