    Carolyn graduated from the University of Idaho in 1958 with a degree in Education and taught in the Fruitland school district for many, many years. She has been active in the Extension programs in Idaho, being an advocate for FFA and 4-H programs. Her six children and 2 of her grandkids have all attended the university and she couldn’t be more proud. She has served on the Alumni Association’s Board of Directors and continues to attend Vandal events across the state. She is a true ambassador and has volunteered for the university of numerous occasions.

  • Sandy Schultz
    Sandy currently serves as a staff member at the University of Idaho Boise. She truly makes it a joy to come to work every day because of cheerful outlook and get-it-done attitude. She has taken on some significant additional projects this year in an emergency situation, such as FitOne, Lunch and Lead, the Welcome Back picnic, and New Student Orientation sessions and she balanced it all gracefully and masterfully. If you have a question that she doesn’t know the answer, she will find it out. She will not take a 50% effort where the university is concerned as she in no way wants to jeopardize the integrity of this institution. Says Trudy Anderson, AVP/CEO of the University of Idaho Boise, “Boise is very fortunate to have Sandy Schultz!
  • Past Recipients

    Jim Dickinson

    Jim Dickinson ’77, ’81 is quite possibly one of the biggest southern Idaho fans of the University of Idaho. He has donated countless hours in service to fundraising and outreach for the University.  He was a member, officer, and then president of the Ada County University of Idaho Alumni Chapter.  Although fundraising started before he served as president, the Ada County Alumni Chapter, with his usual great help, was able to raise enough money to endow and start the Ada County Alumni Scholarship for Boise area students attending the University of Idaho.  He also represented the Ada County region on the National Alumni Board, was elected to each office on that Board, and served as president of the National Board from 2006-2007.  Moreover, Jim has helped organize, set up, and work at the information and check-in tables for many events, including the following: Vandal Scholarship Fund Gala, numerous post-football and basketball events, Vandal “watch parties”, and the annual picnic.  As an alumnus of the College of Law, Jim has generously given his time for the past nine years to travel to Moscow to be a mentor for the First Year Law Student Orientation, focusing on ethics and professionalism.

    Jim’s outreach work is not limited to the activities described above.  As a member of the Alumni Association and Vandal Scholarship Fund, he has volunteered and worked in various capacities at University of Idaho recruiting events for incoming students and their parents. He also engages in recruiting in the Boise area high schools.  Jim proudly supports the University, the students, the faculty and staff, and the programs.  We couldn’t ask for a better ambassador for the university.

    Russ Joki

    Russ Joki has been a leader in our state for many years, coming to the University of Idaho in 2000 after a distinguished career as a school superintendent in Idaho and Oregon.  From 2003-2012 he served in an administrative leadership roles for the University of Idaho College of Education, based out of Boise, beginning  as coordinator of Educational Leadership and then moving to department chair of the CASPEL Department, which was then reorganized into what is now Leadership and Counseling.

    As Educational Leadership Professor Mary Gardiner noted, “Dr. Joki demonstrates leadership utilizing intellect yet practicality; reflection with innovation; humility and confidence…His outreach and service to schools and school districts across the state and beyond has brought credibility to the University of Idaho. Dr. Joki is the quintessential Silver and Gold Vandal and a 21st century leader transforming teaching, counseling and administration in Idaho.”
