We are pleased to announce that undergraduate senior Jenna Gordon has been selected as one of this year's Husky 100.  Jenna will be graduating with a double major in Statistics and Psychology and a minor in Mathematics. Since her first year on campus, Jenna has actively participated in leadership research and development, first as a Retention and Recruitment Assistant Director for Hall Council, a UW student run organization centered around increasing inclusion and belonging in residence halls, and subsequently as an undergraduate research assistant at the Center for Leadership and Strategic Thinking (CLST). Through these experiences, and also by serving as a peer tutor both on campus and for the Washington State Opportunity Scholars program, a non-profit organization focused on building equitable pathways for future trade, STEM and health care leaders, Jenna is guided by a higher sense of purpose - to share and increase access to knowledge and resources to increase equity.

In Jenna’s own words:  "My UW adventures have transformed me into who I am today: a leader, mentor, and advocate for educational equity. My mentors and family have inspired me to make a positive impact wherever I go and ingrained in me a higher sense of purpose. Like them, I hope to continue to share and increase access to knowledge and resources to increase equity through mentoring, tutoring and advocating for those who lack the resources and support needed to succeed. Everyone deserves access to equitable education."

The purpose of the Husky 100 program is to recognize the outstanding work and achievements of students on all three University of Washington campuses who are taking full advantage of their time here. The Husky 100 include undergraduates and graduate students who have founded start-ups, conducted research and advocated for social justice. They work on campus and in our communities. The one thing they share is that they are all making the most of their time as Huskies. Through their coursework, research, volunteer and leadership efforts, internships and jobs, they have created their own Husky Experience. Like all other UW students, the Husky 100 are discovering their passions in life and work as they prepare for rewarding careers in industry, community and life.
