Three UW Madison Alumni made TIME Magazine’s list of the 100 Most Influential People of 2018. Virgil Abloh is a fashion designer that worked with the likes of Kanye West and Takashi Murakami, who is an acclaimed Japanese artist. Ann McKee made the cut due to her groundbreaking research on chronic traumatic encephalopathy or CTE in the NFL. Chris Borland, another UW grad who played as a linebacker for San Francisco, retired at the age of 24 after seeing McKee’s research. Last, but not least,  JJ Watt made the cut, because of his work in response to Hurricane Harvey. According to Huston Mayor Sylvester Turner, “J.J. tackled Harvey’s destruction the same way he obliterates his opponents on the football field. He raised more than $37 million for hurricane recovery and delivered water, food and supplies to storm victims. In the process, he lifted the spirits of all Houstonians. Who knows? After I leave office, J.J. Watt could be drafted as the next mayor of Houston.”
