Montana Tech Announces Montana Tech Intern/Co-op Student Achievement Awards
Career Services, under the guidelines of the Cooperative Education & Internship Association (CEIA) recognizes distinguished achievement and excellence by annually highlighting students who have excelled in or made significant impact in work-integrated learning and demonstrate quality of degree-related work, initiative, professionalism, and overall impact and performance. Internship supervisors of registered Montana Tech interns were given the opportunity to nominate students based on quality of work, quantity of degree-related duties, evidence of applied knowledge, initiative, creativity, and professionalism to name a few. Nominees for the 2018 award included Madison Akers (Montana Resources), Kabri Emerson (Sundt Construction), Miles Hanson (Nucor Corporation), James Hollopeter (Montana Rockworks), Hailey Ogolin (Barrick Gold Corporation), Faisal Pervaiz (Husky Energy). Nominations were reviewed by a campus committee and due to the nature of the applications, a winner was chosen for two CEIA awards – the Internship Student Achievement Award and The Cooperative Education Student Achievement Award. James Hollopeter, a senior in Occupational Safety and Health, was chosen as the 2018 Montana Tech Internship Student Achievement Award recipient for his work at Montana Rockworks Inc. in Kalispell, MT. According to his nominator, Cyndee Carter, James continually performed above and beyond the level expected of him. She specified, “He is seen as one who supports business goals, safety, policies and procedures, and has demonstrated a willingness to dedicate time, talent and energy to improve Montana Rockworks safety and health programs.” Faisal Pervaiz, a senior in Petroleum Engineering, is the 2018 Montana Tech Cooperative Education Student Achievement Award recipient. He worked for one year on a co-op assignment with Husky energy in Canada. Faisal was nominated by his immediate supervisor, Hector Munoz, who indicated that Faisal “ranked as ‘Exceeded Expectations’ through the corporate performance review process” and “received public recognition from the District VP for his contribution to the monthly production performance review.” Hector also mentioned that Faisal was able to manage multiple projects effectively, adapted to changes readily and easily, worked with diverse groups, received exposure to various challenging situations, and developed leadership skills. James & Faisal will receive a certificate from Career Services and a Montana Tech Bookstore gift card.
