UW Bothell Husky 100 honorees share common vision

husky100 honorees

Each year the University of Washington recognizes 100 undergraduate and graduate students in all areas of study from the Bothell, Seattle and Tacoma campuses who are making the most of their time at the UW. The Husky 100 students actively connect what happens inside and outside of the classroom and apply what they learn to make a difference on campus, in their communities and for the future. Through their passion, leadership and commitment, these students inspire all of us to shape our own Husky Experience.

One attribute each of the 11 UW Bothell honorees share is their commitment to making a difference in the lives of the people in their communities. We recognize them here with a brief introduction, to be followed by individual profiles on their experiences and future plans. Read more of their comments on the UW Bothell Husky 100 webpage and see all 100 on the main UW Husky 100 webpage.
