Oregon State College of Science student Sarah Hoechlin was named the Corvallis Knights Staff Member of the Year for the 2019 season, as announced by Team President/GM Bre Miller this morning.
A mathematics & statistics student and head student manager of the Oregon State Softball Team from Springfield, OR., Hoechlin’s primary role was as a promotions intern. However, she also assisted the team with numerous operational-related tasks and was the lead intern for the US Bank Honorary Bat Kid program and our American Dream Pizza Dream Seats promotion.
“Sarah is a team player and has a hungry attitude to complete tasks in a timely fashion and with great attention to detail,” Bre Miller said. “She was always the first person to ask what else she could help with and really made this past season more efficient for everyone involved.”
The Staff Member of the Year Award is the highest honor in the Knights organization. Previous winners were Nicole Schroeder (2018), Jared Carr (2017); Melissa Sullivan (2016); Anna Seydel (2015); Brooks Hatch (2014); Lil’ K and Mack the Knight (2013); Jeremy Ainsworth (2012); Bre Kerkvleit (2011); Doug Blair (2010); Brian Brooks (2009); Stro Strohmeyer (2008) and Holly Jones (2007).

And to top it off extremely humble. Sarah was an absolute joy to work with and I am excited to see what the future holds for such a bright young professional.”
