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 David Ruble, an operations manager with Facilities Management. Rachel Heggie, a student custodian, submitted the following:
As Operations Manager, David has made it his standard to go above and beyond the call of duty. His tireless efforts to enhance the image of Western and the experience of all who come in contact with it, epitomize the ‘Western Way.’ Always placing his own needs as secondary, he is an unfailing resource to any who are in need of assistance. His engaging, collaborative approach makes him a pleasure to work with and learn from. The Facilities department, as well as Western as a whole, benefit on a daily basis from David’s faithful investments.
