In just a few minutes, I’ll be heading across campus to a university-wide event celebrating the recipients of the 2012 Tufts Distinction Awards. And one of the awardees this year is Fletcher Admissions’s own Laurie Hurley, who has been recognized in the Extra Mile category. Laurie is truly an Extra Miler — a double Jumbo with a special dedication to Tufts! And Fletcher applicants benefit annually from the tone Laurie sets for our work.
The complete list of recipients shows the breadth of Tufts University. With each year’s awards (particularly the three years that I served on the selection committee), I have learned something new about running a veterinary school, providing dental care from an academic setting, guiding future doctors, or supporting undergraduates. By U.S. standards, Tufts is a small university, but it is one with unusual reach.
So off we go to celebrate Laurie’s accomplishments! Congratulations, Laurie!!
