Dear Student Affairs Staff,
As another academic year has almost come to a close, I’d like to sincerely thank everyone for your continued dedication and quality work. I’m so proud of all you do to make a difference in the lives of students and other groups we work with. What a great division team!
To celebrate the semester, I look forward to seeing everyone at Monday’s Student Affairs Awards Ceremony at 11:30 a.m. on Monday, April 29 in Ballroom B. And don’t forget our last division meeting of the year on Tuesday, April 30 at 8:30 a.m. focused on “Building Your Own Team.” Lunch will be provided at the conclusion of the program. And speaking of division meetings, Michiko Nakashima-Lizarazo is the winner of $10 on her Wildcard for completing the evaluation survey for the March Staff Development meeting.
Staff Updates: Please join me in welcoming Noel Wilkinson as the new Advisor in the Nontraditional Student Center. Unfortunately, we are losing 3 staff members: Luke Harris, Student Support Services, will be moving to Colorado Springs; Lindsay Beddes, Bridges, plans to pursue a doctorate at Northern Colorado University; and Sierra Crandall, Assessment, will become a fulltime mom. And congratulations to Angie McLean, Disability Services, on her new baby boy, Ewen, born on April 19.
As you know from an earlier email, “WSU Makes a Difference Day in Ogden” is scheduled on Thursday, May 9. Given WSU’s new service leave policy, I hope you will consider participating. Sign up by Friday, May 3, by emailing Annie Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org and include your project preference in your email.

In support of WSU’s commitment to college access, regardless of family income, the Dream Weber program is expanding for 2013-14. Beginning fall 2013, the program will provide free tuition and general student fees to students whose annual household income is $30,000 or less (from $27,000 currently.) For more information, go to http://weber.edu/dreamweber.
Thanks to everyone who attended the Dining for Dollars Scholarship fundraiser at the Sonora Grill on April 11. Over $13,000 was raised at the event. This will be matched from an anonymous donor resulting in a grand total of $26,600.
