Nancy Pautz Memorial Award Posted on November 24th, 2009 by

No need to state again how wonderful and meaningful Career Explorations over Interim are (there IS still time to sign up if you haven’t yet!).  You know you are advancing your career and your personal ability by working in a professional environment for four weeks, but at the same time it can be stressful financially.  You are likely giving up the chance to work retail or a similar job and earn some spending money over the holidays.  The Career Center recognizes your sacrifice and has created a special award to honor a member of our staff and to help you out!

Nancy Pautz loved Gustavus, working on the hill for 21 years, with the last 16 focused in the Career Center.  She was approachable, generous, caring, and always enthusiastic about working with students.  She was also a huge advocate for experiential learning.  When Nancy passed away suddenly, the Career Center established the Nancy Pautz Leadership Award to recognize her countless contributions to the Career Exploration program.

Grab a Nancy Pautz Award application from the Career Center, fill it out and turn it in by Tuesday, December 8th.  You’ll have the chance to receive up to $350 to help cover travel expenses, parking, lunches and other costs that come along with your Interim experience.  Help us honor Nancy and fill out an application!
