Samantha Zimmerman: 'patient, courteous and funny'

Western Today staff

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 was Samantha Zimmerman, a program specialist in Business Services:

Samantha is a lifeline when I am lost in the process of purchasing and travel. She is always patient, courteous and funny, often lightening the mood in a stressful situation. I hear often that she is the go-to person to get an answer regarding a myriad of issues. She is an all-star.

-Max Bronsema, director of Web Communications Technologies (WebTech)
