Support Central students in the name of a treasured educator
Nancy Hultquist was known as a great teacher and an even greater supporter of student success. She was one of the first female professors in the United State working in the field of Geographic Information Systems. Her enthusiasm for Geography impacted students across the CWU campus. To support students and recent graduates, she maintained a jobs list that covered employment opportunities across the pacific northwest. It currently has over 800 subscribers, and many alumni credit her tireless work to helping them launch their career. She was also involved in a wide variety of volunteer groups across the Kittitas Valley, making our community a better place.
The Hultquist Distinguished Service Award was created to recognize and support students who not only succeed in the classroom, but who also give back to the community.
