The fourth annual Red Winged Leadership Award ceremony took place on May 9th. The award recognizes individuals who have applied exceptional leadership skills and business acumen towards socially responsible goals in our community. The event is organized by students in the Graduate Leadership Formation Specialization (GLFS). For more on that program, you can go to: http://www.seattleu.edu/albers/inner.aspx?id=90709.
This year's finalists were Lynette Johnson (Soulumination), Paul Shoemaker (Social Venture Partners), and Molly Stearns (Overlake Hospital Medical Center Foundation). Molly Stearns received the Red Winged Leadership Award for 2013. The award recognizes the great work she has done at the Seattle Foundation and Overlake Medical Center Foundation. Although Molly received the award, all the finalists are winners! For more information on the finalists and the great work they do, go to: http://www.seattleu.edu/albers/inner.aspx?id=111890.
The Red Winged Leadership Award is becoming a singular event for Seattle University. Inspired by Seattle University's experience as a host school for the Opus Award, it is taking on a life of its own because our students are doing such a great job with organizing the process. Its alignment with the mission of Seattle University and the Albers School also make it very compelling.
This year's GLFS students did a phenomenal job of managing the award process and staging the event. Each year, the students put their special stamp on the program. This year, the students introduced a scholarship named for the winner that will be awarded to a Seattle University student. That is a great idea!
Albers is very proud of the work our GLFS students do with Red Winged Leadership Award, under the guidance of Professor Jennifer Marrone. Hats off to all the students and Professor Marrone for a job well done!
