CWU announces honor roll
Lynetta Clare of Carnation was named on Central
Washington University's 1999 summer-quarter honor roll.
Central undergraduate students who earn a 3.5 or higher grade
point average and carry at least 12 graded credit hours are eligible for the
Cherry Valley requests
A collaborative mural project between local artist Daniel Cautrell
and students and staff at Cherry Valley will begin in January.
"This is a House of Learning" project will provide students with
an opportunity to create a lasting and permanent tribute to their school
and extend an element of support and inspiration to current and future
students, staff and visitors to the school.
For this project to be successful, help is needed from the
community. The artist hopes to have donations of 5/8- or 3/4-inch plywood,
photographers to document the project, and a plaque to commemorate the mural.
If you can help in any way, call Daniel Cautrell at (206) 903-1989
or Doug Pierce at (425) 788-1555.
