Mackey Mitchell surprised Pikes Peak Student Body President India Hicks with a $500 scholarship toward registration for next year’s ACUI conference. According to India, “Participating in ACUI has given me the skill set to tackle academic tasks and do more volunteer work in my community. Receiving this scholarship has motivated me to continue on my path to academic excellence.”
This year’s conference, marking ACUI’s (Association of College Unions International) 100th anniversary was successful on many levels. In addition to presenting a scholarship, we accepted a design award for the Mackey Mitchell-designed University of Wisconsin-Stout’s Memorial Student Center. We also shared an evening of fellowship with friends and colleagues at a fun, unconventional restaurant; made a presentation with our client from UW; and chatted with folks at our interactive “Before I turn 100…”booth,” making this an outstanding conference event.
