CU Mag: What does receiving the Rising Star Award mean to you?
Zuleger: Receiving the Rising Star Award is an absolute honor. It feels amazing to be selected as the first-ever winner. My boss nominated me for the award, and I am very grateful to work for a leader who not only challenges me to be better every day but who takes the time to recognize others. Sometimes I think as people climb the ladder, they lose sight of the fact that their team members want to know they are valued and their hard work is appreciated.
I am grateful this award gives me the opportunity to share what we’ve done over the past several years in an effort to inspire others to take similar risks, make similar changes, and ultimately grow by helping more people. That is the CU difference to me.
