2021 SMEA graduate Abigail Rogerson has been named to the University of Washington’s “Husky 100”. Rogerson was a member of a capstone project team advised by Dr. Nives Dolšak, which presented their work “Cascadia transboundary climate change and natural resource governance” in March 2021.
The “Husky 100” recognizes 100 students; graduates, undergraduates, and professional students across the three campuses (Seattle, Bothell, Tacoma) “who are making the most of their time” at the University. Students are nominated and then complete an application where they must demonstrate how they connect their academic work to their time outside of the classroom, and showcase their passion, leadership, and commitment. Students are ultimately selected based on how well they demonstrate the following:
- connect the dots
- discovery mindset
- commitment to inclusive community
- capacity for leadership
- ready for what’s next
While studying at SMEA, Abby also uncovered a passion for food justice, and how food security and sustainability can lead to healthier, more resilient communities. Abby put this into practice in her own community by assisting with the UW Pantry during her time in SMEA.
