Dear Washington State University Everett Community,
I hope everyone’s new year is off to a safe and productive start. As the spring semester gets underway, I want to introduce some familiar faces in new roles.
At the end of last year, two longtime members of the WSU Everett team, Randy Bolerjack and Holly Longman, left for new opportunities. Our campus is all the better for their service and we wish them all the best.
I am pleased to announce that Corrie Wilder is joining our Administrative Leadership Team as Executive Director of Marketing and Communications. Corrie is a well-known face at WSU, having begun her tenure at the Edward R. Murrow College of Communication, first as an adjunct instructor then as a Scholarly Assistant Professor and Marketing Director for the college. She is currently pursuing her doctorate in Education Leadership at WSU Everett.
Our students will be pleased to know that in addition to her leadership role at WSU Everett, Corrie will continue to teach for Murrow College, including a senior capstone focusing on community engagement and experiential learning.
I have also named Alberto Vazquez, Interim Associate Director of Student Affairs, Admissions and Recruitment for our campus. Alberto has a proven track record in college recruitment and retention. He also embodies the WSU Everett success story, as a non-traditional transfer student who graduated from Washington State University’s Edward R. Murrow College of Communication in 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication with an emphasis in technology and culture.
Some of you may have met Alberto on that special day when he waved Ol’ Crimson at her 246th Game Day appearance. Others may have heard him speak about his goal to help WSU Everett grow into the top choice for bachelor’s degrees in the North Puget Sound.
Corrie and Alberto join a small but mighty cadre of dedicated leaders here at WSU Everett. Together we will strengthen and expand our marketing and recruiting reach in 2022 and beyond. Please join me in welcoming Corrie and Alberto into the fold.
Paul Pitre, Chancellor,
Washington State University Everett
