College Invites Students to Shout-out Staff Members

In a message in the Nov. 7 Daily Mammoth, the college invited students to shout-out staff members. Any student, faculty member, or fellow staff member can fill out a form on the college’s website to recognize a staff member for their “noteworthy contribution to the Amherst College community.” Recipients receive a “thank you note” and an entry into a monthly lottery for college-themed gear. A list of each month’s recipients can also be found on the website.
