I am beyond honored to be nominating Marilyn Bowen because not only has she been an invaluable teacher to me during my short time in the Schmitz suite, but she has been holding down a large part of the Housing and Food Services fort for almost six years. If you ask anyone who works with her, they will tell you what an absolute hoot she is! But they will also tell you how extraordinarily detail-oriented she is in all of her tasks and just how truly dedicated she is to our work here in Student Life and at the University of Washington at large. She thinks ahead to anticipate the needs of others, she is an absolute expert in all things HFS, and her passion for felines is unmatched. It’s an absolute pleasure working across from her every day in Schmitz and I will miss it when we move to the new Terry offices!
