University of Washington’s Tolo Chapter of Mortar Board was selected Mortar Board’s most outstanding collegiate chapter in the nation in 2019!  The chapter received the incredibly prestigious Ruth Weimer Mount Award at last summer’s Mortar Board National Conference in Little Rock, AR.  This is the second time Tolo Chapter has been selected for the pinnacle award of chapter achievement.

Congratulations, too, to Tolo Chapter’s adviser, Margot Nilsen Smith, who received the Excellence in Advising Award at the national conference.  Well deserved!
