January Awesome Award

PUYO presents Awesome Awards to individuals who have gone above and beyond their roles throughout the year. The recipient of the Awesome Awards gets to pick the next winner.

Recipient of PUYO Awesome Award: Raymond Zhang

“This month’s awesome award goes to someone I could always depend on finishing their work without chasing them down. He is always there cool, calm and collected no matter what storm I throw at him. He provides great support to the executive team and is a great role model for his own team. Although they are new to the role, this person took on the challenge with confidence helping organize and manage a team professionally. His rapid growth within PUYO has amazed me. For January’s Awesome Award, I would like to present this to our Finance Director, Raymond Zhang!”

Recipient of PUYO Awesome Award: Rachel Huang

“The first PUYO Awesome Award of the year goes to someone who I have the pleasure of working closely with this year. She stepped into this role not knowing what to expect and has handled everything with ease and a smile on her face. Although the role is stressful and she does not have a lot of experience leading a team in PUYO, she is always eager to learn and willing to step up and do the job. I have seen her grow over the years into a promising leader and I’m excited to see what she has in store for PUYO this year.  The recipient of this PUYO Awesome Award is: Vice-President Rachel Huang!”
