I'm delighted to tell you that Holly Hatch-Surisook has won a 2007-08 John Tate Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Advising. This is a highly competitive, university-wide award. Please join me in congratulating Holly on this splendid recognition for "...sustained and substantial contributions to undergraduate education at the University of Minnesota ..."
As most of you know, Holly has played the key role in building our academic advising program. We have a program in which we can take great pride, thanks to Holly's creativity, hard work and commitment. Just think about how many Psychology students have benefited from Holly's advice, and from the input they have received from our excellent advising staff.
We all take pride in this wonderful recognition of Holly's contributions to our department and university.
