Haley Writing Awards
CAC Students Win Haley Writing Awards
The Haley Writing Awards, established on the UWT campus in 2001, were named for Fred Haley, former president and CEO of Brown & Haley – best known for their chocolate confections such as Almond Roca and the Mountain Bar. Haley, a Stadium High School graduate who later attended Dartmouth and served as a Navy harbor pilot during World War II, championed the concept of liberal arts education and played a pivotal role in the establishment of UWT in 1990.
The annual Haley Writing Award ceremony was held in the Tacoma Room on May 13. This award, for faculty-nominated papers exemplifying some of the best writing done by UWT students, is given in three categories: the short paper (up to five pages); the mid-length paper (approximately five-10 pages); and the long paper (more than 10 pages).
