  • Alumni Q&A with Colleen Fukui-Sketchley, ‘94 | Office of Minority Affairs & Diversity
    I recently tracked down Dr Purcell my favorite UW professor who is now at SPU and told him that I have the same level of passion for social justice fairness and equality as he showed me over two decades ago It was incredibly gratifying to be able to tell him about the impact he had on me Courtesy Colleen Fukui Sketchley The Sketchley family gets ready to cheer on the Huskies Q You have previously served with the Friend of the Educational Opportunity Program Board What inspired you to get involved Fukui Sketchley What an honor it was to serve on the board of FEOP The inspiration to get involved stemmed from the lifelong work of my Mom While my Mom is super proud of me as all Mom s are she admitted to me she is a little bit sad that this kind of work is still needed in this day and age She never thought in a million years that I would be doing the same work as she did that the need for OMA D would still exist that there would still be inequality in the world and that we would still be fighting for social justice and social change A ton of progress has been made since my Mom did this work and now it s MY lifelong mission to do what I can to leave it better than I found it for my seven year old son and the generations to come Q How long did you serve on the FEOP Board Fukui Sketchley Over 12 years Q What was the most fulfilling aspect of being a member of FEOP Fukui Sketchley The students by far were the most fulfilling aspect of being a part of FEOP We saw the real impact that scholarships and supportive programs have on a student s life To watch the students become actual rocket scientists and brain surgeons makes me so proud that I was able to be a part of this very special Board that does such incredible work Courtesy Colleen Fukui Sketchley Colleen with OMA D Associate Vice President Emile Pitre Q Celebration 2014 is coming up on May 22 How would you describe the significance of this event to those who aren t familiar with it Fukui Sketchley Celebration is a very special event It is a time that we get to celebrate the accomplishments of very deserving students We get to hear their personal stories of struggle and strife which reminds us in the audience of our responsibility to support those who need financial assistance to pursue their dreams and passions These are the next Presidents of the United States the next leaders in our communities the curers of cancer and the people who will be contributing and giving back to our communities It is appropriately named Celebration it really is the Celebration of our bright future Q Are you involved in any other volunteer work UW or otherwise Fukui Sketchley I feel very fortunate
