Recipients of the Aces of Spading

Team Adrian: Camilla Hundley

Team Carly: Elizabeth Cannon

Team Angie: Caitlin Van Sant


Please congratulate these folks if you see them around campus, and ask them for spading tips, too! They did a truly great job on this issue. We really do appreciate everyone’s hard work. Without you, it would not be possible to produce the quality product that we are known for.

One other special award went to the person with the best Write-on submission. Out of more than 80 entries, this person submitted the #1 paper. Keith Underkoffler will receive the Arthur E. Schmalz award, hopefully from the award’s namesake, at the Alumni Social in late February. Please congratulate Keith on an exceptional effort as he takes the torch from last year’s winner, Matt Tully.
