Staff Members Honored for Service to UW Students
Members of the Mortar Board, the senior honor society at the University of Wyoming, selected UW staff members to receive the “Tip of the Cap” award. The award honors those who offered “exceptional contributions to the University of Wyoming and inspiration of students."
Mortar Board recognizes students who have excelled in and out of the classroom, based on scholarship, leadership and service. Mortar Board members participate in many projects and activities throughout the year, both on campus and in the Laramie community.
Ty McNamee, Mortar Board president, summed up the students’ feelings toward the Tip of the Cap recipients when he introduced his honoree, Margaux Christensen, Alumni Relations business manager.
“Margaux does a great deal for the UW Alumni Association and the university overall. She helps plan the entire UW Homecoming parade and advises the Wyoming Student Alumni Association,” McNamee said. “Margaux does all this and more with a smile on her face and a laid-back personality.”
