Student Worker of the Month: Josh Girgenti
The Office of Career Services has chosen Josh Girgenti as its Student Worker of the Month.
Girgenti is a sophomore with a dual major in health-care and business administration. As a worker in the Antelope Reception Center in GCU Arena, he serves as a receptionist and is the assistant to the ARC’s director, Shannon Landers.
“He is an excellent leader and a great motivator,” Landers says. “Josh exemplifies Christian camaraderie. His willingness to serve is clear in his excellent customer service and leadership qualities.”
Girgenti also oversees the Lope Leaders and is the student point of contact for Discover GCU and many other campus events.
“We try to represent GCU in a way that gets students excited,” he says. “They get excited because they see how excited we are. My job is to get people psyched.”
A transfer student from Arizona State University, Girgenti fell in love with GCU and its family atmosphere.
“I want to serve people any way that I can,” he says. “My two degrees and my pursuit of a pastoral position are all designed for me to be in a position where I can advocate for people.”
After he earns his bachelor’s, he would like to stick with GCU as he pursues an MBA with an emphasis in leadership. Girgenti is a believer in Dr. Ken Blanchard’s vision of servant leadership — and tries to live it.
“Life comes at you fast, and the best thing we can do is love people,” he says. “Whatever we say and do is a reflection of who we are.”
He takes his personal motto from Micah 6:8: “He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”
