The West Shore Chamber of Commerce Education Committee presented the annual Student Achievement Award to Jaclyn Maat at the May 7 Chamber luncheon. Jaclyn is an employee of the Westlake Recreation Center, where she has worked since shortly before graduating from Westlake High School in 2011. The award is given to recognize West Shore Chamber business members and their student employees or volunteers that show an exemplary work ethic.

Jaclyn is a full-time student at Cleveland State, plays volleyball for the CSU club team and still finds time to work at the Rec Center on evenings and weekends. She works year round in the child care room, staffs the monthly "parent night out" program, serves as a summer day camp counselor and helps out with keeping score for the youth baseball program.

Jaclyn was nominated by her supervisor Rachel O'Malley who stated that Jaclyn "always has a smile on her face and is the kind of employee that everyone wishes they can duplicate."

The award came with a $50 gift card courtesy of First Federal of Lakewood in Westlake.
