Karin Mellskog, Tradesmarks & Licensing

I would like to thank Karin Mellskog for the fabulous work she has done in 2015 in support for the UW License Plate program. This program directly benefits UW scholarships. Karin has created so much fun and excitement around the plates and we have seen a great increase because of her efforts. If you have any doubt about the success of Karin’s efforts, feel the excitement at UWHuskyPlates on Facebook!

Justin Williams, Information Management

Big thanks to Justin Williams for uploading a LOT of current students into ADVANCE this week! He not only created a huge number of new records with very few errors; he also wrote a great and understandable summary of the project, on which he very courteously copied the ATS updates team. Justin, thank you for your hard work and for being so helpful.

Cailean McWhorter, Annual Giving

Kudos to Cailean McWhorter for taking on the large task of rebranding all the Annual Giving collateral! Not only is he creating a new face for the Student Calling Program, but he’s also completed 12 new on-brand retractable banners and a myriad of other design projects for SPEP and Annual Giving. We all appreciate you, Cailean!

If there was a turkey large enough to feed the UMAC team for their tireless and dedicated work on making “UW in Shanghai” a success, I’d bake it (or deep fry it) and serve it to each and everyone on the team.  From web updates, creative designs (of all sorts of crazy things), last minute changes, figuring out what Chinese words go where, creating content, driving strategy, shipping, guiding messaging, emails (and more emails), galvanizing media and above all, making UW look good in China…UMAC was there (and is still there) at every turn.  And an extra special KUDO to Jennifer Johnston for her unwavering commitment to making sure all the parts and pieces came together before we all took off on the plane.  Thank you.
