Honoring Senator Rosemary McAuliffe at the 2016 Annual Bright Futures Benefit Breakfast
The 2016 Bright Futures Benefit Breakfast, held on campus on November 1, 2016, successfully raised over $123,000 in support of student scholarships, program support, and the student emergency fund. The Foundation’s signature event showcased inspiring student speakers, informative videos produced by a recent LWTech graduate, and a delicious breakfast prepared by LWTech’s outstanding Culinary and Baking Arts students.
President Goings honored State Senator Rosemary McAuliffe, a true champion of higher education, with an Honorary Bachelor’s Degree in Public Health, in recognition of her stellar advocacy and longstanding partnership with LWTech.
“I consider it a privilege to have known Senator McAuliffe for the past 20 years and to have witnessed her tremendous commitment as a public servant. Her grace and adoration for her community and family has made our community, and our college, a better place,” said President Goings.
Senator McAuliffe’s impressive support of the institute includes playing a key role in advocating legislation
to change our name from Lake Washington Technical College to Lake Washington Institute of Technology, serving on the LWTech Foundation Board of Directors, and Honorary Co-Chair of the Foundation’s Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing Startup Campaign. Additionally, five of Senator McAuliffe’s grandchildren are graduates of LWTech!
The Bright Futures Benefit Breakfast, proudly presented by Microsoft, featured many key business and community leaders in addition to students. Master of ceremonies, former LWTech Trustee Neil Johnson, spoke warmly of his support, “I personally fund several scholarships at LWTech, and as the Chief Operating Officer at EvergreenHealth, I know firsthand the importance of a well-educated, skilled workforce.”
