Each year, faculty have the opportunity to nominating graduating seniors for the HDFS Outstanding Undergraduate Student Award. The award recognizes students who go above-and-beyond expectations by demonstrating excellence in the major as well as being a good citizen and positive representative of the HDFS department.

Congratulations to Ann Reinke, recipient of the HDFS Outstanding Undergraduate Award for 2022-2023! Throughout her time at NDSU, Ann demonstrated excellence in academic achievement, departmental and university citizenship, and community service.

Ann graduated in May 2023 with a dual degree in HDFS and Social Work. She is currently living and working in her hometown of Williston, ND. During the summer of 2023, she passed her licensure exam and received her North Dakota license of social work. In August, Ann started working at Wilmac Special Education Unit, which serves all of the schools in Williams and Mackenzie counties. She works as a social worker for the Behavioral Health Unit supporting kids with behavioral struggles. Ann shared that “I miss the community at NDSU and I’m thankful for all of the notes I took in classes, because I’ve already reviewed some of them! I appreciated my time at NDSU and all of the wonderful faculty in the HDFS department.”
