Congratulations to Keylen Newsome, who was honored Friday, April 15, as Student Employee of the Year – not only for Sacramento State but for the entire state of California!

He and 14 other nominees for the University honor were celebrated at the annual Student Employee Appreciation Luncheon in the University Union Ballroom.

A second-year Economics major, Newsome was honored for his work as an academic mentor with Improve Your Tomorrow, a college preparatory program that provides services and support for young men of color with academic and disciplinary issues.

Each year, the National Student Employment Association recognizes exceptional student employees at the university, state, and federal levels. Keylen was selected as the winner from both Sacramento State and California for the outstanding work he does in our community and the differences he makes in others’ lives every day.
