The University of Washington annually recognizes 100 students among all undergraduates and graduates enrolled at Bothell, Seattle and Tacoma campuses. “Through their passion, leadership and commitment, these students inspire all of us to shape our own Husky Experience.” To be selected is a great honor and source for celebration as most students are nominated by faculty and advisers on campus.
Since the inception of the program in 2016, AES has had 11 students honored by the award. The chosen few have been proudly recognized at AES graduation commencement for their show of leadership.
The 2021 honorees are:
- Han Eckelberg, BA: American Ethnic Studies; BA: Art (Photo/Media)
