Each spring, Cowboy Parents accepts nominations for the "Each Student--A Person" Award. This award was established in 1994 to recognize a member of UW's faculty or staff who has gone above and beyond to personalize the student experience at UW and who has taken it upon themselves to create a warm and caring environment for our students.
In 2000, the award was renamed after James C. Hurst, UW's vice president for student affairs from 1981--2000, who is remembered for his warmth, his wisdom, and his dedication to student success.
Recipients say this award is particularly meaningful because nominations come from the students, with the Cowboy Parents Council making the final selection.
The recipient is honored at the annual Student Affairs Recognition Ceremony in the spring.
