A Message from the Board of Trustees
Anne Hamilton, 2015-2016 LWTech Board of Trustees Chair
It’s an honor and privilege to serve on the LWTech Board of Trustees. The work we do, along with the faculty and staff, truly makes a difference in the lives of students. As the only public Institute of Technology in Washington state, students choose LWTech because they are ready to make a change in their careers — and their lives. The trustees appreciate
Advocating on behalf of the college is something that we take very seriously. We strive to make a strong and positive impact for LWTech by meeting with legislative representatives during challenging legislative sessions, like this past year. We also meet regularly with state
and national representatives, local business leaders,
and collaborate with the LWTech Foundation Board, in partnership with LWTech President, Dr. Morrison Goings, to advocate on behalf of the college. We believe that bringing LWTech’s stories and influence to the broader community will forge deeper connections — both locally and nationally.
Our hope, as you read through this report, and as you learn more about the great work being done at LWTech, is that you too will become an advocate for the college. Together, we can keep growing student success!
