Accomplishment: Maria worked on the GAANN proposal during the week between Christmas and New Year's in order to get the proposal completed on time. Maria did this work during a time when many staff members chose to take vacation time for the holiday. Maria knew that she would be busy with admissions work in January/February and recognized how critical it was to complete the GAANN on time. She has completed 3 GAANN proposals for optics.
Benefit to the Hajim School: GAANN provides funding for student stipends in turn relieving the department of this burden.
