That is something which also applies to each individual staff member in the Pullman School District. We really do have an amazing student-staff environment, and I'm beyond grateful for it!’ Jane has plans to attend college in pursuit of a career in the medical, humanities or business fields.

How does snow form? —Susan, 8, Lake City, South Carolina Dear Susan, It just so happens that when I looked out the window here in Pullman, everything was covered in glittering snow. So I put on my favorite red mittens and went to visit my friend Nic Loyd, a meteorologist here at WSU. He studies what’s going on up in the skies. He explained that water moves through our atmosphere in different forms all the time. Clouds are made up of tiny water droplets that have turned into a gas called water vapor. It comes from evaporated water that rises from Earth’s surface. When the temperature plunges, the water drops will freeze into tiny ice crystals. “Snow occurs when lots of tiny ice crystals in clouds stick together to form snowflakes,” Loyd said. The flakes can be made up of anywhere from two to more than 200 ice crystals. The hydrogen and oxygen building blocks that make up water will also freeze into particular patterns that give nearly all snowflakes six arms. While snowflakes share this trait, they can come in all kinds of shapes and sizes. In fact, you may have heard the phrase “no two snowflakes are alike.” After further research, it turns out some snowflakes actually are identical. It’s pretty rare to find two that are exactly alike. But the odds of finding them go up when you consider that a block of snow, just a foot tall by a foot wide, contains an estimated million billion snowflakes. Once snowflakes have formed up in the clouds, gravity brings them down to Earth’s surface. It’s a nearly 20,000-foot fall. Typically, it takes about an hour for a snowflake to fall from a cloud to the ground. That is, if we don’t catch them on our tongues first. Snowflakes are lighter than rain and they are easily blown in the wind, so the journey is longer than a raindrop’s, which takes just about three minutes. “Snow can only reach the ground if the temperature is below freezing everywhere in the atmosphere,” Loyd added. “If snow reaches the ground that means that it was never rain at any point during its journey from the cloud.” After I left Loyd’s lab, I plopped down in a drift to make a snow cat angel. Then I looked up to the sky again. This time knowing that no matter where you go, somewhere in the world countless tiny snowflakes are forming up in the clouds. Sincerely, Dr. Universe Have a question for Dr. Universe? Visit askdruniverse.wsu.edu.

If you know of a student who may qualify, applications will be accepted through January 31, 2018. These scholarships are powered largely by the Cougar license plate program, which in 2016-17 produced over $600,000 in scholarship support.

BOARD REPORT

Things I Wish They Would Have Told Me About Parenting Dean Kinzer, Pullman Public Schools Board of Directors I can just about guarantee that every parent has said at one time or another “I wish these kids came with an instruction manual!” We (parents, schools and the community) pour significant time and effort into our children preparing them to be adults but we continue to be uneasy with their judgment in their late teens and early twenties. Why don’t we see consistent good decision making coming from these young adults? Nobody told me that the issue is most likely that the frontal lobe of the human brain does not reach maturity until our mid to late twenties. As a matter of fact, research has revealed that adult and teen brains work differently. The brain’s rational part—the prefrontal cortex—is used by adults to think. The prefrontal cortex is the part of the brain that responds to situations with good judgement and an awareness of the long-term consequences. Teens think with the amygdala portion of the brain which is responsible for emotions, survival instincts and memory. The connections between the emotional part of the brain and the decision making center are still developing—and not necessarily at the same rate. To that end our young adults often can’t explain what they were thinking when they did something but they can explain what they were feeling and how they acted on their feelings. This explains why our young adults can be brilliant with a grasp of all the facts, figures, and statistics that enable them to score well on the SAT or ACT tests but lack the ability to use good judgment at all times. Knowing this should spur us as parents to be more actively involved with our children at school and home. If I had known this earlier in life I’m certain I would have interacted with my children differently by being more active and available in their decision making. Another thing I was not told was the relationship between a students’ extracurricular activity participation and success in life. A students’ participation in extracurricular activities is one of the best indicators of whether they will be successful, contributing members of society. According to the Center for Comprehensive School Reform (CCSR): • Students’ classroom engagement is related to student participation in activities, especially among kids from poor families. • Activities help kids build supportive relationships among peers and adult staff, a key component in classroom engagement and college aspiration. • Structured activity programs create peer groups with higher aspirations and more commitment to academic success.

emotional and social health. An important and subtle distinction between student activity programs and other types of programs for at-risk students is noted by Holloway (2000). He says, “such programs provide the opportunity to create a voluntary and positive connection with their school. Knowing the benefits of being in activities, I would encourage every student to get involved in at least one activity that helps develop his or her individual passions. The Pullman School District offers a robust list of activities for our students to participate in. I would also note that it can be easy to become overcommitted and involved in too many activities which can be detrimental to health and academic success. The word moderation might be kept in mind. I am writing and submitting this article a week before the election for school board positions. This may be the last article I write as a school board member. If that is the case I would like to say that it has been an honor and privilege to represent the community as a member of the board. If I should remain on the board, I look forward to working for you and hearing from you. Be sure to enjoy the winter season and take a little time to reflect on the many blessings we have in our community. Thank you for all you do for our Pullman School District.

Lincoln Middle School—A Safe Place to Explore the Unknown Tammy Sewell, Assistant Principal When you enter Lincoln Middle School, one of the first things you will see is our mission statement painted on the wall. “Our mission is to embrace exciting learning opportunities through meaningful exposure to knowledge and safe exploration of the unknown”. Although all aspects of this mission statement are worthy of note, I want to focus on the last part. If you were to take a university class on designing the ideal middle school, you would find that this concept of “safe exploration of the unknown” is a key component. In the book This We Believe, Keys to Educating Young Adolescents, it states this clearly: “As students come of age, the exploratory responsibility of the middle level is particularly critical. In many respects, this level of school often represents the last chance. If youth pass through early adolescence without broad, exploratory experiences, their future may be needlessly restricted. They deserve opportunities to ascertain their special interests and aptitudes, to engage in activities that will broaden their knowledge of the world and of themselves.” In the short time that I’ve been a part of Lincoln Middle School, what I can guarantee is that this school is deeply committed to safe exploration of the unknown. On any given day you will find adolescents all over the building involved in a wide variety of activities. We open our doors at seven a.m. In that early morning hour you will see athletes practicing in the gyms. Students also gather to eat, work on homework, and hang out at the tables in the commons. By 7:45am the clubs are beginning to gather. We have over 25 clubs available before and after school for students to explore. They range in variety from Chess Club to Debate Club to Drama Club. Students who love music have three different clubs to choose from. Students can come in at lunch to crochet with Ms. Claypool or stay after school with Ms. Emerson to enjoy Art Club. Our clubs have about 400 in attendance each week. Over 325 students are enrolled in at least one sport. About 50 students are part of our ASB Leadership. This level of participation is awesome, but we want more. We have two new club proposals that we are about to submit to the school board. If we had it our way, every student would be involved in at least one club or sport year round. Lincoln Spartans are busy! Our Builders’ Club recently collected over a thousand pounds of food as they ran a “Scare the Hunger Away” food drive. In Fitness, Movement, and Sport, students learn everything from the correct way to play badminton, to step aerobics and dancing. I was recently invited to Ms. Peterson’s movement class where I watched a group of seventh graders successfully and beautifully tap a complete dance routine to a Justin Timberlake song! We offer French and Spanish to eighth graders as well as offer a TV production class “Channel 3”. In Ed Davis’s technology classes, students work with computers, electronics and robotics. An essential component of safe exploration includes being allowed to participate in sports, regardless of skill level. That is why we have a “no cut” policy. Every student who wants to learn and/or play a sport has the opportunity. We just started boys’ basketball and we currently have seven basketball teams for 7th and 8th graders. Yes, seven! The following quote was taken from the New York State website NYGear Up. This is a federal initiative designed to increase the number of students prepared to enter postsecondary education. “Studies show that students who participate in after-school activities have greater expectations for the future and were more interested in school than their peers. Having a greater sense of purpose and more self-esteem gives you a reason to say “no” to risky behaviors. Students who participate in after-school or community activities are more likely to succeed at school.” Our goal is that every student feels a part of the school community, that every student is proud to be a Spartan. Our staff works hard to make this happen. I have only scratched the surface of what our middle school offers Pullman’s children. Know that from 7 in the morning until 8 or 9 at night, you can find the busy hum of exploration of our community’s youth at Lincoln Middle School.

Gladish Community & Cultural Center

December 2017

Demler earns new position GBT plans fundraiser Dec. 9 Who: Graham Ballet Theater What: Annual Winter Performance and Auction Where: Gladish’s Domey Auditorium When: 1 p.m. Saturday, December 9 Why: To support scholarships and theater needs.

Ben Demler is the new Events and Facilities Coordinator for Gladish Community and Cultural Center. Ben began working as a teen doing farm work and quickly realized he was more interested in working with people. A Whitman County native, he moved to Pullman in 2010 after earning a general education degree from the University of Idaho.

Graham Ballet Theater’s Annual Winter Performance and Auction is planned for Saturday, Dec. 9, at Gladish Cultural and Community Center.

He began working construction for multiple companies, including Beasley Construction. Following his construction work, he turned to customer service jobs. Ben’s heart for people brought him to Whitman Senior Living Center and Bishop Place, in Pullman, where he worked with the elderly and special needs populations.

The event begins at 1 p.m. in Domey Auditorium and includes GBT performances, an auction, hors d’oeuvres and beverages. Tickets are $19.

“Working at those two places brought me such satisfaction,” he said. “I love being able to serve others and be the person to meet people’s individual needs. I brought that passion and dedication with me when I joined the Gladish event and custodial staff in 2015.” His hard work and dedication at Gladish paid off. “Ben was the obvious choice for our Events and Facilities Coordinator position. He has incredible passion and an undeniable gift for working with people and the details behind the scenes,” said Amy McPherson, Gladish Executive Director. “I feel lucky to have him on my team.” Ben has already made event coordinating improvements such as streamlining event scheduling through the Gladish website, which continues to be a work in progress. His authenticity and easy-going personality have been a testament to Gladish’s commitment to excellent customer service, Amy said. “I especially enjoy the multi-cultural aspect of my job,” said Ben. “Just in October, I’ve had the privilege of working with Festival Dance and Performing Arts, the Pullman Islamic Center and helping coordinate the KuAhMah Round Dance.”

Our Winter Concert and Auction is Graham Ballet Theater’s primary annual fundraiser, said Noreen Graham who established GBT in 2001. Proceeds go to scholarships, costumes and sets, productions and operating expenses, etc. This year’s program includes classical and contemporary pieces, some new ballets and old favorites, choreographed by Hannah Myers, Lulu Saberi and Ms. Graham. Graham Ballet Theater is a unique local 501(c) 3 not-for-profit organization. The mission is to bring local professional-level dance training and performance to the area. She said GBT’s focus is giving local students the opportunity to have the technical and artistic ability to achieve success at the national and international level. The school offers classes for ages 3 and above. “Although not every child who studies at Graham Academy, will pursue a professional career in dance, the skills and focus learned in a professional program are invaluable in all areas of life,” said Ms. Graham, a former professional dancer with 20 years teaching and choreographic experience in the San Francisco Bay Area. Graham Academy students have been accepted into internationallyrecognized summer and year round programs of the American Ballet Theater, Pacific Northwest Ballet, Lines Contemporary Ballet SF. San Francisco Ballet, Pittsburg Ballet Theater, Houston Ballet. Washington Ballet, Oregon Ballet Theater, Alvin Ailey, The Rock, Dance Theater of Harlem, Chicago Ballet, Joffery Ballet, Ballet West, and the list continues.

Holiday Concert

7 p.m. December 12 | Domey Auditorium Gladish Community and Cultural Center During the program the community band will remember long-time group member and civic leader Wally Friel who passed away recently in Pullman.

Graham Ballet Theater has collaborated in performances with Sinombre Quartet, The Idaho Washington Symphony Orchestra, the Pullman Youth Choir and various local musicians. Since 2001, the company has mounted numerous new ballets to works by composers as diverse as Peter Gabriel, Ahn Trio, YoYo Ma, Mozart, Arvo Part and Elgar. Every program includes new works by Ms. Graham and other local choreographers. For further information contact 509-338-4446, nrnsky@aol.com, grahamballet.com, or look up our Facebook event page—Graham Ballet Theater Winter Performance. Graham’s studio is at the Gladish center, 115 NW State.

Pet Photos with Santa!

WCHS is selling basketball tickets to the December 6th WSU vs UI game, at UI starting at 7PM, for $12. A portion of the proceeds will go to the shelter. Please come by the shelter to pick up your tickets (cash or check accepted.)

LONGEST SHELTER GUEST

 Bosco  Meet the lovely Bosco! Bosco was WCHS alumni that was returned due to not being the right fit with his adopter. Bosco is a sweet fellow that likes to try to sneak face kisses! Bosco loves long walks more than anything else in the world, and he adores playing fetch with his squeaky chicken. When you approach his kennel at WCHS he’ll jump and bark like crazy trying to get your attention, but all he wants is for you to take him outside on a sniff n’ run! Don’t let his loud voice fool you, he LOVES to cuddle and snuggle with his human friends but he just gets over excited at the idea of meeting you and so yells at you about it. In a home environment, Bosco doesn’t bark hardly at all! Bosco does need a lot of exercise to stay happy and healthy. He loves his outdoor playtime. While Bosco has done well with his leash walking training, if he sees a small dog, cat or small child on a walk he will get very excited, bark and pull on the leash. While he tries to look tough, this guy HATES rain and cold weather so would really love life as an indoor dog, where he’ll get to go outside in a safely enclosed area or on a leash to get his runs and jumps in! If you think Bosco might be right for you, please don’t hesitate to come meet him! Bosco’s adoption fee is $130. He is neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, and tested for internal parasites.

Support the shelter this month and bring your pet for Pet Photos with Santa! Your pet will sit with Santa Claus for a photo (to be delivered via e-mail) in exchange for a suggested donation of $10. We have two available dates for this event, 12/2 at Pets Are People Too from 12-3 and 12/9 at Shopko from 12-3.

Hours Update We'll be open late December 5th (2 PM as opposed to 1 PM) due to an event at WSU.

Snow and Ice Control For online access to the complete snow and ice control program, go to http://bit.ly/2fGTHzx. City crews concentrate initial snow and ice control efforts on primary streets, which are streets that lead to those lifesustaining services. It is of little benefit for primary streets to be passable if other streets leading to the primary streets are impassable. When possible, efforts are extended to transit routes and other non-arterial streets with high volume traffic, many of which are residential streets which is where the majority of the population can be found. Finally, as time and conditions allow all other paved streets, cul-de-sacs, unpaved streets, paved alleys and unpaved alleys that are not designated as primary or secondary streets are plowed. Motorists are strongly urged to use the primary and secondary streets whenever possible to reach their destinations. Motorists are also encouraged to drive slowly, with caution and allow for plenty of stopping distance.

Pedestrian Pathways, Sidewalks and Parking Lots Pullman Parks Department removes snow that accumulates on city-maintained sidewalks, the city-owned trail system, and city-owned parking lots. This process starts as soon as the snow begins to accumulate in these areas. The objective with respect to parking lots is to provide and maintain off-street parking in recognition that on-street parking may be reduced during snow events.

Sidewalk Snow Removal Winter snow is just around the corner, so please keep your sidewalks clear of snow and ice for the health and safety of all Pullman residents. Pullman City Code, Chapter 11:42, requires property owners to remove snow and ice from sidewalks adjacent to their properties. It is unlawful to permit any accumulation of snow or ice on a public sidewalk adjacent to your property. Snow or ice must be removed within eight hours of daylight after such snow or ice has fallen or accumulated on the sidewalk. Thank you for your cooperation in keeping the sidewalks within the city clear of snow and ice for your neighbors and fellow residents.

Hughes bids council farewell

Directory of City Officials

At the end of December, Fritz Hughes is ending his tenure as city councilmember that began in February 2012 when he was appointed to an unexpired term held by C.B. “Barney” Waldrop. Fritz stood for election and won his seat for the 2014-2017 term. Here are his thoughts in retrospect.

Elected Officials

“I want to thank the Pullman community for its support these past six years as I have represented Ward 2 as a city councilmember. I raised my family in Pullman, and spent most of my professional life here; it’s been my privilege to give back to this community through public service. My past 31 years of public school experience as teacher and administrator in the Pullman schools and eight years as Pullman Chamber Executive Director helped make a smooth transition to becoming a member of the Pullman City Council.

“I have witnessed many changes in Pullman these past six years. We have seen population growth, housing growth, economic growth, and local industry growth: the industrial park, expansion of Washington State University, medical excellence at Pullman Regional Hospital, growth of public and private schools, development of the Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport, expansion of the Pullman Transit system, and the development of social media for communication, to name a few. Many of these developments have happened through local entrepreneurs who have cared enough to invest in our Pullman community. “I have had the opportunity to work with very professional personnel within city government. The city has guided Pullman’s comprehensive plan that allows for organized growth. Setting goals and priorities, and fiscal responsibility are important to the council as well as establishing a closer relationship with WSU as the city and university partner in the economic development and overall welfare of the community.

“I have the reputation of having a difficult time staying retired, but I haven’t wanted to do anything more than give back to this wonderful place that has provided so much to me and my family. City Council has been a good conduit for my giving back; I am grateful for the privilege of serving through this avenue.”

Prevent frozen water pipes

Be holiday safe

During your absence around the winter holidays, the following recommendations may apply to you to prevent possible property damage.

The Pullman Fire Department reminds you about some simple fire safety tips. 1. Never leave cooking food unattended. Unattended cooking causes 46% of all house fires.

• While you’re away, do not shut off your heat source. Instead, set your thermostat at 55º to protect against frozen pipes and potential water leaks from broken pipes. Leave under-counter kitchen and bathroom sink doors open and make sure that all exterior plumbing pipes are properly insulated.

2. Keep candles at least one foot from combustible material. 3. If you use portable or stationary space heaters, keep them three feet from any combustible materials. 4. Do not overload outlets with electrical cords. Electrical overloads cause 35% of home fires. 5. Check your chimney and furnace regularly to help prevent chimney fires or carbon monoxide leaks. The Pullman Fire Department wishes you and your family a safe and happy holiday season.

• During all absences from your residence, be sure to lock and secure your doors in order to minimize your chances of theft or burglary.

PARKS & RECREATION New Brochure Coming The Pullman Parks & Recreation Winter/Spring brochure will be available the week of Dec. 11 and registration will start Dec. 20.

The Power to Empower—the Women’s Leadership Guild

Women’s Leadership Guild members, Katie Van Wyngarden, Stacey Swift, Sandy O’Keefe, Ashley Alred, Megan Guido, Virginia Martinson, Dr. Noel Schulz (keynote speaker), Angie Feuerstein (Guild Chair), Jennie Eylar, and Shelley Bennett, celebrate at the 2017 Women’s Leadership Guild Grant Award Luncheon.

The Women’s Leadership Guild has successfully raised more than $70,000 since its inception three years ago. Membership contributions provide funding to support women’s and children’s health and wellness through grant awards to non-profits and support Pullman Regional Hospital’s highest needs. Regional non-profits are invited to apply for grant funding every August and awards are announced at a celebration luncheon in November with funds being awarded in December. After reviewing 2017 grant applications, members voted to award funds to seven regional non-profits to empower their actions and mission to make life better for women and children. Eleven non-profits submitted applications for the 2017 grant cycle, and members voted to award funds to:

Patient Gown Redesigned to Aid in Comfort and Modesty

After being part of more than 800 deliveries and assisting in the miracle of childbirth, Laurie Heimbigner, R.N., was inspired to redesign a common hospital gown to add a level of comfort during one of life’s most precious moments. Laurie Heimbigner is now retired from Pullman Regional Hospital and from serving as a labor and delivery nurse for 38 years. Based on that experience, she designed a more functional and comfortable hospital gown for laboring and postpartum women. The two-piece garment—a belly-banded skirt and separate top—provides modesty and comfort to mothers and promotes skin-to-skin contact. This unique design also allows for monitors to be placed and stay in place without an obtrusive process. The Center for Learning & Innovation at Pullman Regional Hospital is pursuing the design of the gown, which is patent pending.

Fosback Receives WWAMI Lifetime Excellence in Teaching Faculty Award Recently honored with the WWAMI Lifetime Excellence in Teaching Faculty Award from the University of Washington Department of Medicine, Stephanie M. Fosback, M.D. has now become the youngest UW faculty member to have ever received this prestigious award. Working full-time as an Internal Medicine primary care provider at Palouse Medical and part-time as a hospitalist at Pullman Regional Hospital, Dr. Fosback has also been proud to serve her alma mater in the role of faculty physician with the UW Department of Medicine since 2011. UW Lifetime achievement awards are only earned after an individual has received the same award four times throughout their career. Dr. Fosback’s fourth award came earlier this summer when she was one of nine honorees to be awarded the 2016-2017 Richard M. Tucker Excellence in Teaching Faculty Award. Determined by student nomination and committee selection, this year’s candidates where chosen from more than 325 clinical faculty members of the University of Washington Department of Medicine, spanning across the states of Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho (WWAMI). This special emeritus award included a commemorative wooden captain’s chair with her name engraved under the official University of Washington seal and plaque. It was presented by Dr. William Bremner, Chair of the UW Department of Medicine and Dr. Douglas Paauw, Director of UW Medicine Student Program During what was supposed to be a special clinical guest lecture, Dr. Fosback was instead caught completely by surprise when she entered a conference room full of proud and supportive medical colleagues, staff members, friends, and where even husband and parents were all anxiously awaiting her arrival. During the award ceremony, Dr. Paauw explained that the Lifetime award recognizes Dr. Fosback’s previous awards and her enthusiasm and dedication to teaching and training the next generation of physicians. He was proud to state, “Steph Fosback’s commitment to our medical students’ education is unparalleled. She is a shining star of the UW internal medicine teaching program.” Having grown up in Colville, Washington, Dr. Fosback is the daughter of Michael Snook, M.D., who practiced Family Medicine and was a founder of the first Family Practice Rural Training Track site for medical residents in the United States in 1986. When asked about why she enjoys teaching she states, “Students have an undeniable energy that I am so grateful to be around. They ask questions that I don't know the answers to and teach me something new every day.” Among her many goals, she hopes she can show students that life practicing rural medicine is wonderful, that they can make a difference, and that

primary care medicine is the pillar of all medicine. Scott Adams, CEO of Pullman Regional Hospital, said, “Dr. Fosback understands the importance of preserving the primary care relationship between patient and provider and how critical it is for rural healthcare sites to sustain a commitment to excellence and continuing learning.” Dr. Fosback said “I feel incredibly honored and humbled! It’s hard to be singled out, because this achievement is not mine alone—it belongs to ALL who are involved!” Though there isn’t enough room to list everyone involved, she wholeheartedly wished to thank all the patients, medical colleagues, teaching providers, the staff at Palouse Medical, her nurse Cheryl Swain, R.N., and everyone who helped make each student experience impactful and memorable.

In 1950, Washington State College hydraulic and chemical engineering students used the second floor as a laboratory. I wonder if a radio played Hank Williams or Fats Domino. On the right, in this same space, SFCC Pullman students today study in one of the computer labs with a faculty office in the background and a classroom behind the door on the right.

STAFF SPOTLIGHT

Leathia Botello, our new Office Lead!

ASSISTANT DEAN’S MESSAGE

Joal Lee

Pumpkin spice has gotten sort of a bad rap lately, probably because it has been over-promoted and shoe-horned into a bevy of unlikely products, such as toothpaste, potato chips and deodorant. But I’m still a fan. I enjoy the smell and taste of cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger. And I like these smells and flavors even more once the days grow shorter and colder and the leaves are all gone from the trees. There is something warming and pleasantly nostalgic about them. They remind me of the ciders and pies and spiced meats I would consume at family gatherings during the holidays when I still sat at the kid table with my cousins and siblings. These aromas help me remember the importance of creating similar memories for my own children and remind me of some of the traditions that have helped shape my life. Leathia Botello is excited to have recently joined the SFCC-Pullman team. Originally from California and raised in western Washington, she lived in and attended school in Marysville and then Langley, WA. She graduated from Wallace High School in northern Idaho. Leathia attended the University of Idaho where she earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in sociology. As a first-generation college student, she dedicated her college career to helping Latino students develop and reach their educational goals. As a member of the student group OELA (Organización de Estudiantes Latino Americanos), Leathia helped create and implement Vandal Challenge Latino’s for a Better Manana Leadership Conference. This conference helped selected Latino high school students from southern Idaho learn the admissions, financial aid and registration process for UI. Participants were mentored by college students who answered many of their questions about college life, family support, and local community. After graduation, Leathia worked as coordinator of multicultural student programs at University of Idaho, served on many university committees, and was a staff advisor to several multicultural student organizations. During her tenure at UI, she received the Latah County Human Rights Task Force Rosa Parks Student Award, UI/WSU MLK Distinguished Staff Service Award, and Student Adviser Award. In her new role at SFCC-Pullman, Leathia continues to enjoy working with students and helping them reach their educational goals. She also enjoys baking with her goddaughters, card/board games with friends and reading a good book while enjoying coffee.

There is something comforting about annual traditions. Traditions can sort of fold time for us; in a single moment, we can remember the feeling of being young while also being aware of ourselves as we now are while also remembering a parent, aunt, uncle or grandparent who once acted in the role we now occupy. Traditions can also be a poignant reminder of the inexorable march of time, as they highlight the absence of people who are no longer with us and remind us of how we have all changed a little bit over the past year. And this, in turn, can remind us of the tremendous value of the time we do have together. From all of us here at SFCC-Pullman, we wish you happy holidays and meaningful time together with those you love.

Our classes are filling up.
