Volunteer of the Month
" John was in contact with UMSL well before the Vet Center opened, chomping at the bit to help veterans even thought we didn't have an outlet for him. When we finally opened our doors he began volunteering his time every Monday afternoon from 1-4pm. He helps veterans access information on jobs, specifally those organizations who are looking to hire veterans. His work includes every facet of the employment search from helping write resumes to even making phone calls on behalf of individual student veterans."
Ryan Barrett, Interim Director UMSL Veteran's Center

Megan strives to take a professional approach to every task and is always willing to do whatever it takes to provide a quality experience for patrons here at Gallery Visio."

“After retiring from MIMH, Nancy recently came back as a volunteer. Because she is familiar with the Institute and our employees, not a lot of supervision is needed. She has updated our office floor plans, has helped with a telephone audit, and reorganized our grants and contracts storage room. She is detail oriented, takes initiative and, most importantly, is a happy worker. Nancy’s volunteer service for MIMH is truly making a difference. We are so pleased that she has come back to work with us and appreciate the many things she does for MIMH."

"Jumai joined our staff at the Computer Education & Training Center in December and has been diligent in her work. She is helping us update our curriculum and has been painstakingly thorough in her research. Jumai was eager to dive into this project and we are looking forward to working with her on the next task."

"Colby volunteers at the Sedexo Food Court area of the Millennium Student Center. He keeps the area of the condiments sparkling clean and the plastic cutlery, napkins, salt, pepper, cream, and sugar supplied. He also has to make sure the floor where the employees are working is free from spills of any kind. Colby is tasked to watch out for his fellow workers and take care that they don't have any mishaps."
