Outstanding Graduate Coordinator
KATHLEEN F. QUADE has served as Graduate Coordinator in the Department of Marine Science in Port Aransas, Texas, since the inception of its graduate program ten years ago. She played a major role in the development of brochures and other documents that are used in recruiting new students and helping them successfully complete their graduate degrees, and continues to keep these materials current and available on the web. Kathy is in the unenviable position of having to resolve problems that sometimes arise for students whose home department is 200 miles away, but she readily provides the personal touch and expertise needed on these occasions. Kathy's organizational skills, knowledge, reliability, composure, and diplomacy are greatly appreciated by those who work with her.
She received the Outstanding Graduate Coordinator Award for 2002.
