The center announced in May that this year's recipient will be Carol S. Wood, associate vice president for public affairs and University spokeswoman.

The Zintl Award is presented annually by the Women's Center in memory of the late Elizabeth Zintl, an accomplished writer and journalist who served as chief of staff to the University's president. Given to a woman employee at U.Va., the award honors the high degree of professionalism, creativity and commitment that characterized Zintl's significant contributions to the University.
