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.
Recently recognized were Derek Bryson and Rhys Logan in the Office of Communications and Marketing. Bryson is a graphic designer, and Logan is a visual journalist. Submitting the recognition was John Thompson, marketing manager in the Office of Communications and Marketing:
Derek and Rhys recently completed work on WWU's first in-house-produced PSA for airing on ROOT Sports during two basketball games in January. Completing the task required not only a huge amount of time but a willingness to push themselves into learning new areas and features of the design process. Experimentation had to become the norm and a part of the final product, which can be nerve-wracking when it's going to be broadcast across the PNW. They went above and beyond, and are extraordinarily deserving of this recognition.
