School Administrator Accepts Red Cross Spectrum Award for Work with Freshmen
Mary Young, the director of the School’s Ziff Graduate Career Services Center, was among 12 outstanding women honored by the Red Cross during the Sarah Hopkins Woodruff Spectrum Awards for Women in March.
The awards are presented each year in recognition of outstanding women whose efforts have made significant contributions to the quality of life in South Florida.
Young received the White & Case LLP Education Award for her work with the School’s FIRST Step program. The program, mandatory for all freshmen, is designed to expose students to business ethical principles, teamwork and the challenges that organizations face in the twenty-first century. An acronym for Freshman Integrity, Responsibility and Success through Teamwork, FIRST Step partners students with local community organizations for which they undertake projects ranging from the development of marketing plans to greening initiatives.
Young and the other honorees were recognized at a luncheon March 5 in downtown Miami. Read more about the awards and view photographs from the event at Gables Home Page.
