Here's a picture of of Melisa Ziegler (Career Services) with Sheila Taormina, an Olympic swimmer, triathlete and pentathlete. "She’s basically amazing!" writes Melisa. "I met her last summer at a motivational speech she did for Danskin Triathlon participants. She let me wear her gold medal which was pretty cool."
Quinton Morris (Fine Arts), meanwhile, demonstrates a knack for the double-celebrity shot. In the picture to the left, Quinton appears with U.S. Congressman John Lewis (D-GA), right, and King County Councilmember Larry Gossett, left, following Quinton's debut performance at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle. In the picture to the right, is with Quincy Jones, left, and Father Steve.
And finally, Casey Corr (Marketing Communications) had this
hair-raising experience with President Jimmy Carter. Casey was at the
White House as a writer for the Daily Journal American, a
Bellevue-based newspaper that no longer exists. During this visit
(circa 1978) he was telling the president he had earlier met his
brother and mother, who both had visited the Seattle area.
