Two graduate students in English--Soh Yeun (Elloise) Kim and Cait Lowe--have been selected for the inaugural class of the Husky 100, an elite group of "100 UW undergraduate and graduate students from Bothell, Seattle and Tacoma in all areas of study who are making the most of their time at the UW."
Kim is a doctoral candidate in English who has served on the Graduate and Professional Student Senate, the Provost's Advisory Committee for Students, the Faculty Council on Multicultural Affairs/Faculty Council on Women in Academia, and on the English Department's Diversity Committee.
Lowe is currently studying for a MA in English. As writing center lead at the Center for Learning and Undergraduate Enrichment (CLUE), she has worked with tutors to develop content, and she has co-designed a 10-week professional development program for tutors.
The Husky 100 are chosen based on how well they demonstrate a "discovery mindset," a "commitment to inclusive community," a "capacity for leadership," and a "readiness for what's next."
