Kari Temkin honored with SoHE Early Career Alumni Award

Badger Volunteers Coordinator Kari Temkin has been honored with the UW-Madison School of Human Ecology’s 2016 Early Career Alumni Award.

The annual award recognizes outstanding graduates who have received a degree or certificate from a program within the School of Human Ecology in the past 10 years. Selection is based both on demonstrated achievement and leadership within a chosen field and potential for continued growth and success.

Temkin, who earned a bachelor’s degree in Community & Nonprofit studies from the School of Human Ecology in 2009, has been with the Morgridge Center for Public Service since May 2014.

“The School of Human Ecology launched me into a career where I could put my values into action every single day, and for that I am eternally grateful,” Temkin said. “Being a human ecologist has poised me to be a compassionate and productive leader, which aligns well with the work I do at Morgridge Center for Public Service.

“I am humbled and honored to receive this recognition and immensely proud to be a School of Human Ecology alumna.”

Congratulations to Kari!
