'Incredibly adept' staffer honored

Western Today staff

Box Office manager Jessie Phillips is the latest to be recognized in the Western Way program for her excellent commitment to Western Washington University.

"Jessie is a person I look forward to interacting with," wrote Chris Casquilho, manager of Marketing and Special Events in the College of Fine and Performing Arts. "She is incredibly adept at her position, and intuitively realizes the value of the information coming through her office. She regularly shares thought and suggestions that improve the experience of our patrons, and is willing and excited to try innovative approaches to providing services to students, staff, and the public."

Do you work with an outstanding colleague at Western Washington University? The Western Way program provides the opportunity for faculty and staff to recognize the great efforts of others on campus.

Any time throughout the year, folks in the WWU community can visit the Western Way website to recognize a Western employee who demonstrates excellence in serving students, visitors or colleagues, based on the characteristics that make them uniquely Western: inviting, engaging, distinctive, collaborative and adventurous.

Western Way honorees are recognized online on the Western Way Wall of Acknowledgment, in Western Today and in a slideshow at the Employee Recognition Ceremony in April.
