Meet the Graduate Assistants: Mariah Tennell

Here at our remote Team Awesome bunker we’re taking time away from our holiday cooking to give thanks for the graduate assistants who put the Team and the Awesome in Team Awesome. You’re already familiar with their hard-working, tech-supporting, can-do attitudes. Now we pull the curtain back a little bit further so that you can get to know them better. Today, we’re featuring first-year student Mariah Tennell who plans to be a Metadata Analyst after she graduates.
