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 Amerie Lommen, a web developer in WebTech. John Thompson from the Office of Communications and Marketing submitted the following:

Amerie pursued on her own volition the development of a social-media aggregator that will be an amazing, distinctive asset for the university. Called #WesternSocial, this web application will have all of Western’s main social media feeds such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram fed into a display that will show each item individually as a tile, a much more visual approach than is typical. She took the base open-source code for the project and customized it to include Western’s brand as well. She did an amazing job and deserves this recognition!
