Many congratulations to SOAN Administrative Assistant Karen Austin, who was recognized with Colgate’s Oak Award last week at the annual Green Summit.  The Oak Award is given to those members of the Colgate community who are outstanding champions for the cause of sustainability.  When presenting the award, student Dominic Wilkins read the following citation for Karen: “This Oak Award goes to an outstanding member of Colgate’s staff who has dedicated a lot of time and effort to sustainability over the last year. This person serves on Colgate’s Sustainability Council and as a Chair of the Administrative Assistants Best Practices Group. They have been a leader in sustainability among the Administrative Assistants and the greater Colgate community. Please join me in recognizing the 2016-2017 Staff Oak Award Winner, Ms. Karen Austin.”
