Bianca Gutierrez, an FIU senior majoring in Communication Arts, was chosen as the 2016 Student Employee of the Year. She was chosen for her contributions to the team in the Office of Alumni Relations & Annual Giving, where her focus was largely on the university’s internal fundraising campaign: “Ignite.” Working on the fundraising campaign has provided Gutierrez with invaluable experience and prepared her for the work she wants to do in the nonprofit sector after graduation. She hopes to raise money and awareness as an advocate for women. Gutierrez was awarded a host of gifts ranging from a large cash award, to a number of food and beverage gift certificates, but the real prize was her very own parking space, which is, as everyone knows, priceless.
