These awards challenge me to do a better job of acknowledging the people I get to work with.
I remember being a senior at Fox and feeling so compelled to say "thank you" before I left. I thumbed through the Bruin and wrote down names of those who had either impacted me personally or in anyway I'd observed them express kindness to someone else. I never made it through my list (I came up with 50+ people!), but the the philosophy remains.
Most people really don't know they're doing a good job unless someone tells them they are.
