#TeamGetItDone Gets it Done! DH Marathon SSI 2011

The 12 hour DH marathon at the 2011 Summer Success Institute started with 11 participants and ended with three triumphant women! Kudos to all who accepted the challenge, and special congratulations to Nikki, Maritza, and Patti, the last three standing!

The theme for the DH was #TeamGetItDone, based on a Twitter hashtag that was created and regularly used by DH members and Ph.D. candidates Sophoria “Nikki” Westmoreland (Mechanical Engineering, UM College Park), and Alexis Williams (Human Development, UM College Park). The energy at the DH at SSI was high and the participants worked hard! Congratulations to all!!
