Nominated by: Bob Marcotte

Accomplishment: I am working on a story about the awards Hajim students receive -- especially about the people those awards are named for, and how those awards came to be. When I showed up unannounced at Gina's office to ask about a couple of the optics awards, she was incredibly helpful, checking through old files and an online data base, even placing a couple of phone calls to find the answers I needed. I was very impressed that she would do this on the spot, rather than get back to me later.

Benefit to the Hajim School: The information Gina provided for me will help tell the story of how our alumni and former faculty members, or those who wish to preserve their legacies, have stepped forward to establish student awards that help showcase what makes our school special. They also serve as an example for others to follow.
