State Rep. Scott White, a WWU alum, tours campus

Washington state Rep. Scott White, D-North Seattle, toured the WWU campus Wednesday with Sherry Burkey, associate vice president for University Relations, Tim Wynn, director of Facilities Management, and Rick Benner, executive director of capital planning.

Rep. White, here wearing a blue jacket and carrying an umbrella, paused to talk to the group after looking through the Communications and Academic Instructional Center buildings and adjacent plaza.

A 1992 Political Science graduate of Western, Rep. White now sits on the House Higher Education and Capital Budget committees. He spent the day talking and listening with the campus community to understand the challenges facing Western and the difficult legislative climate for higher education in the next legislative session.
