Congratulations to our student staff Sarah Fish, 2016, for her selection to All-Northwest Conference in Rowing.

Congratulations to our intern Max Kroner Dale, 2018, for receiving the Charles D. Allis Scholarship.  This monetary award honors a junior or senior student majoring in economics with a GPA of 3.0 or higher who has demonstrated excellence in statistics and quantitative methods, a consistent work ethic in both academic and outside activities, and the quality of thinking of others before one's self.

Congratulations to our student staff Casey Dobbert, 2018, who will be interning this summer in the Santa Rosa, Ca. area for a newsweekly called the Bohemian. Her position will focus on the editorial aspects of the paper’s production.

Wishing success to our student staff Paige Peterson, 2018, who will be attending summer classes at Portland State University.

Congratulations to our student staff, Madison Montemayor, 2017, for been invited by the Psychology Department to stand for honors, which means I will conduct a research project next year and then complete an honors level thesis and presentation on my research, in addition to my regular psychology senior paper. For my project, I will be examining whether personal strivings (consistent, general goals a person characteristically strives for) can accurately predict future success, specifically in terms of academics.

Congratulations to our student staff Courtney Ibabao, 2018, for receiving the William B. Webber Scholarship for 2016-17.  Four Webber scholarships are awarded on an annual basis to women majoring in Chemistry, Biology, Environmental Science, and/or Physics. The $4,000 per-year stipend requires that the Webber scholars participate in the Willamette Science Outreach Program, a community service project in which the scholars serve as role models to elementary school girls, encouraging them to continue their studies in math and science. The goal of the Science Outreach Program is to provide young children with female role models in the sciences while exposing them to the different scientific fields with hands-on projects and experiments. The Webber scholars perform their outreach service by visiting a chosen elementary school classroom for an hour per week for twelve consecutive weeks.
