We’re excited to be running the clothing donation table at Lawnstock again this year! Donate an article of clothing (or lots!) to get one of these cool hats.
(RSVP here: https://www.facebook.com/events/167172817309289??ti=ia)
Donations go to Wise Buys thrift store, whose proceeds benefit Lydia Place, a local nonprofit helping homeless families in Whatcom County.
Happy Ella Higginson Day!
Living just across the street (605 High Street) from the Western campus, Mrs. Higginson (1862?-1940) was an early and popular supporter of Western and its students. She frequently did readings of her work on campus which showcased the Pacific Northwest. In 1914 she was asked to write a poem in honor of the school which became the Normal-by-the-Sea.
In 1916 the school celebrated her contributions by naming May 24th as Ella Higginson Day and hosting a special assembly in her honor.
For more information about Ella Higginson check out the blog created by one of Western's current students https://ellahigginson.blogspot.com/

Jesse Nichols and Kjell Redal of Western Washington University were just named Society of Professional Journalist national award winners in the Online/Digital Feature Videography category for their project titled “Troubled Waters.” Nichols and Redal produced this video as part of Joe Gosen's Advanced Visual Journalism course (JOUR 446) last spring.
