J.J. Ceniceros, a long-time student employee in the Department of Performance Studies, was honored this past month as one of 38 finalists for the university-wide Student Employee of the Year.
Ceniceros, who graduated on May 11 with a bachelor’s degree in both music and theater, was presented with a plaque at the April 12 ceremony held at the Clayton W. Williams, Jr. Alumni Center on campus.
The Perryton, Texas, native has been a vital member of the Performance Studies front office since the summer of 2009. In addition to being a rare music/theater double major, Ceniceros has taken an active role in the department. He was a performer in the Fall 2010 production of Dangerous Liaisons, performed and directed one of the most compelling senior 400 projects the department has ever produced in April of 2012, and designed all the departmental music posters in Spring 2012 in addition to training many students workers who have come and gone through the department during his tenure and even serving as a speaker at a handful of fund-raising events.
