Jayme Jack, Regional Advancement

Jayme is always an incredible team player but this week, she was especially so in helping me pack and ship materials for the 20 (!) football viewing party sites. I couldn’t have finished this large project without her extra set of hands and willingness to get
pompom debris on everything. Thank you, JJ!!

Garrett Hall, School of Law

Garrett Hall, Associate Director for Advancement, UW School of Law, deserves kudos for exemplifying the responsive and generous spirit of UW Advancement. I recently reached out to ask if he might share details of a gift, Garrett not only responded the very same day but did so before heading out the office for vacation. Thank you, Garrett!

Erin Bailey-Sun, Alumni & Constituent Relations

Thanks to Erin Bailey-Sun, the UWAA/ACR team and everyone across campus who produced and attended the Mighty Tieton Block Party. The success of Mighty Tieton wasn’t just the content, it was the partnerships and collaborations across the University that made it so great. These partnerships include the School of Art, Foster School of Business, Human Centered Design and Engineering, the College of Pharmacy, the College of Built Environments, CoMotion, The College of Architecture, College of Arts and Sciences, and the Libraries.

Chris McEwen, ATS & Barron Cato, PMRA

Kudos to Chris McEwen and Barron Cato for jumping in at the very (and I mean VERY) last minute to participate in the ‘Planning a Killer Event’ panel discussion at this year’s Engagement Summer Session. They provided interesting and useful insight into managing event data, migrating to Cvent, and modeling and analytics for event data. Without their contribution the ‘data’ portion of this presentation would have surely devolved into 30 minutes of me grumbling about ADVANCE.

Export+ Team, Information Management

Kudos to the Export+ team for all of their hard work leading up to the beta launch of this excellent new Reportal list download tool. Special thanks to Jenny Acevedo-Barga, Dapeng Chen, Alex Ichinoe, Sarah Maloy, and Daranee Oakley for their creativity and expertise in turning so many great ideas into a practical and intuitive solution.
