ELIZABETH “ELLIE” BOONE, daughter of Dr. John Boone and the late Karen Gervais Boone, received the Rising Star Award for the Western USA by the National Association of Student Personnel Administration.

She is a fourth year student at University of Washington Bothell, majoring in psychology, and a 2016 graduate of South Whidbey High School.

This award is conferred on an undergraduate nominated by the student’s university or college for service to others, outstanding leadership skills, significant contribution to her or his institution and going beyond what other students contribute.

She received the award at the NASPA convention in Portland, Ore. on Nov. 4.

“Ellie is someone who takes risks, puts herself out there, and takes advantage of every opportunity presented to her,” said the assistant director of student engagement and activities. “She is the type of leader who shares successes and failures with her teammates, and pushers herself and others around her to be the best version of themselves.”
