It’s March! I feel like it should magically be spring, but I have lived in Washington long enough to know that we are in second winter. This is typically followed by second spring, then third winter and then, maybe just maybe, we will get real spring! I look forward to the nicer weather because there is so much to do here on the Palouse when the sun shines. I love to hike, and camp and ride my horses. As I daydream about all the fun things I want to do when the sun returns I am always impressed by all of the amazing things that you all do!
This time of year there are many award programs running at WSU and it is always a joy to watch you all win. I just recently went to the Employee Recognition Reception. Congratulations to all of you achieving your milestone year awards! Recognizing the hard work of all our APs is vitally important. You should have received several emails about award programs like the President’s Leadership Award and the WSU Women of Distinction Awards as well as possibly others. Included in this newsletter, you will see more information about nominating your fellow co-workers for the AP Contribution Awards.
Good work deserves recognition. Too often we go above and beyond our job duties without recognition and we end up feeling overworked and underappreciated. So let those achievements shine, even if the sun isn’t! Nominate those that are doing good work around you and I hope to see all of you on those award stages over the next few months! Go Cougs!
