It’s National Student Employee Appreciation Week! Every day this week we’ll be highlighting our incredible student employees! First up, meet the students who work with Averie and Louise in our Demonstration and Loan Programs!

Katelyn Sager is an Oklahoma State University (OSU) Communication Sciences and Disorders graduate student from Highlands Ranch, Colorado. She assists with device demonstrations specifically for Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) devices, fulfills loans for the Device Loan Program, enters data, and updates the online inventory system. Katelyn’s positivity and leadership uplift everyone around her. Katelyn is a finalist for OSU student employee of the year!

Maddie Reed is an OSU Recreational Therapy junior from Newcastle, OK. Maddie helps with all tasks for the Device Loan Program. From preparing assistive technology (AT) to calling clients to making sure everything is back its place in the inventory room, Maddie is dedicated to helping our clients have the best experiences. Her enthusiasm for sharing client success stories never fails to make us smile.

Kennedy Willingham is an OSU Agricultural Communications senior minoring in marketing from Stratford, OK. Kennedy helps with all tasks for the Device Loan Program. With her exceptional communication and customer service skills, Kennedy ensures every device loan request is handled with care and efficiency. Kennedy’s positive attitude and strong work ethic shines through in everything she does.

Haylee Lundry is an OSU Communications Sciences and Disorders junior from Haworth, OK. She assists with all tasks for the Device Loan Program. From sending and preparing devices to sending emails to updating devices before they are sent out, Haylee is a hard worker. Haylee plays a huge role in setting-up new iPads so individuals can trial Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) and other assistive technology (AT) apps. Her infectious positivity brightens our days!

We’re so thankful for these student employees and grateful for the work they help us do to make life accessible to Oklahomans of all ages and abilities.
