At its October meeting in Bremerton, the Ruckelshaus Center’s Advisory Board welcomed three new members: 1) Former US Secretary of the Interior and REI CEO Sally Jewell; 2) Interim UW Law School Dean Anita Krug (ex-officio); and 3) UW Law Faculty Liaison Christine Cimini (alternate). The Board also warmly thanked departing members Ernesta Ballard, Jack Creighton (joining Bill Gates, Sr. as an Emeritus member), Jay Manning, and Terry Williams.
Since the last eNews, the Center has benefited from the talents of several new staff members:
- WSU Communication graduate Haley Hughes, Communication Coordinator;
- UW Evans student Terri Gu, Development Intern;
- WSU graduate Shane Carnohan and UW Evans student Alexa Schreier, Project Coordinator and Research Intern (respectively) for our Recreation Fees project; and
- Renske Dyedov (formerly with the Emerging Leaders in Science and Society Program) who served as the coordinator of our 2017 Chairman’s Circle Luncheon and fall 2017 Board meeting.
With Shane and Renske departing, we thank them for their outstanding work while looking forward to continuing to work with Haley, Terri and Alexa.
