Gehrig Burnett (Mathematical Sciences) was presented with the Grand Skookum Award, the highest honor.

The Alumni Association honored 15 members of the Class of 2021 during the Skookum Awards Ceremony on November 8. In order to ensure the safety of all involved, the event was limited to student honorees and select members of the campus community, and it took place outdoors with masks and social distancing required. The Skookum Award of Excellence was established in 1989 by the Alumni Association to recognize student achievement through demonstrated leadership, community service and volunteerism, and participation in athletics and cocurricular programs.
