Andrew Johnston, a Computer Science / Computer Engineering Junior, was named the 2014 UK Student Employee of the Year at a banquet earlier in April.

Johnston, who works in the Department of Analytics & Technologies for supervisor Smitha Chopra, was one of 10 finalists selected from over 30 nominees submitted from campus and health supervisors. A review panel narrowed the initial group of nominees down to the 10 finalists, who were invited along with their supervisor and family members to the banquet that honored the students' valuable contributions to the University of Kentucky. 

The Seventh Annual UK Student Employee of the Year Banquet was held at the Hilary J. Boone Center. The event was attended by UK President Eli Capilouto, and Provost Christine Riordan was the keynote speaker.
