Two Rowing Alums Receive UW High Honors
Given the hard work associated with rowing, it's no surprise many student-athletes from the University of Washington are successful in their post-collegiate pursuits. Recently, the UW and president Mark Emmert bestowed two of the highest honors possible in recognizing its distinguished alumni.
Bruce Nordstrom, who is a retired president and chairman of the board of Nordstrom Inc., was given the Alumnus Summa Laude Dignatus. Nordstrom remains one of the iconic Seattle business. The award is one of the most prestigious the university hands to a graduate, and recognizes a lifetime of achievement in a person's field.
The other nominee was Lex Gamble, who received the Alumni Association's Distinguished Service award, given to individuals "who make outstanding efforts on behalf of the UW Alumni Association."
