Leaders to the core

Carol and I look forward to each edition of the Washington State Magazine. The articles are engaging, well written, and inspiring. The recent issue, Summer ’23, was no exception. The Sarah Babbitt, Colonel, US Air Force picture displaying the Cougar flag, while stationed at Thule Air Base in Greenland, was proof Cougs are everywhere providing great leadership.  In addition, the piece on Sid Morrison highlighted one of Washington’s most respected and effective political and community leaders. His leadership legacy is one rarely matched and serves as an example of the collaboration and leading from a set of core values. Thank you for another issue of the Washington State Magazine, recognizing the Cougar nation. Go Cougs!

Just rewards

Great teachers are the brick and mortar” [Summer ’23] is a moving, rewarding read. Thank you for writing and publishing this piece.

So glad the President’s Residence is now the Ida Lou Anderson House and WSU recognizes the brilliant, extraordinary work done by everyday people. I’ll bet Murrow was not the only student enriched by Ida Lou Anderson’s skillful teaching and talent.

Let’s hear it for Ida Lou Anderson and for all the dedicated staff at WSU.
