GRC Service Awards Recap

On Thursday, September 20, we celebrated 83 faculty and staff service anniversaries. Besides the incredible number of honorees, this year’s awards were notable for another reason: we presented them on their own day during opening week. This gave us an opportunity to include the entire board of trustees as well as giving our honorees an even that was entirely dedicated to them. We’ve included a few photos of some of this year’s winners along with the full listings below!

Thank you to our recipients for your years of service to education! Thanks, as well, to the Conference Services and Media Services crews for helping make this year’s event truly memorable.

Your vote counts

As we end primary season and look ahead to the November mid-term elections, we’re voting-ballotreminded that every vote is an important part of our democracy. For those who have had felony convictions, there can be a number of questions surrounding voter eligibility. To help determine eligibility, our local branch of the ACLU has sent us some handy guides that we would like to share with you. Below, we’ve included two versions of the same poster (English and Spanish). We hope you’ll take a look here or at aclu-wa.org/voting-rights and canivote.aclu-wa.org and share this information with anyone who has been affected by prior felony convictions.
