      Dear students, alumni, and friends of the Urban and Regional Planning
      Department at San José State University,

      I am very pleased to announce that, for the second year in a row, a
      student of the Master of Urban Planning (MUP) Program at San José State
      University has received the highly competitive and prestigious American
      Planning Association's National Planning Leadership Award for a Planning
      Student. Students from all urban planning schools in the United States are
      eligible, but only one is selected each year to receive this award.

      The award recipient this year is Taryn Hanano, MUP class of 2009 (last
      year the award went to Emy Mendoza, also a graduate of our MUP program).
      The American Planning Association's National Planning Leadership Award for
      a Planning Student recognizes Taryn’s exceptional scholarship and ongoing
      commitment to advancing the visibility and recognition of the urban
      planning profession. Taryn has been active in student and professional
      organizations throughout her entire academic life. While at SJSU, Taryn
      was fully involved with the Urban Planning Department's student group, the
      Urban Planning Coalition (UPC) as president and as student representative
      for the American Planning Association (APA) Northern California Section,
      where she sat on the Board of Directors and acted as a liaison between the
      university and professional planners to create networking and educational
      activities.Taryn is now a Long-Range Planner for the City of Fremont, her
      hometown, where she works on the General Plan Update 2030, and has
      completed the formidable task of producing the Draft Housing Element
      2007-2014 for review by the planning commission and city council.

      Please help me distribute the news widely to recognize Taryn's impressive
      accomplishments.

      Best wishes from San José State,

      Dayana
