My Fair Lady Plays at the Mt Baker Theatre

Be prepared for an entertaining evening at the Mt Baker Theatre as Professor Henry Higgins & his side kick Colonel Pickering transform guttersnipe Eliza Doolittle into a genteel lady.  The performance of My Fair Lady is  fun for young an old alike with wonderful music, a cast that some of you may recognize & a story that is timeless.

The good news is that there is another showing this evening so you still have time to buy your tickets.

Support WWU / Support Western's Engineering Proposal

Support Western’s Engineering Proposal

As many of you know, our son Graham recently graduated from WWU.  His degree is in Manufacturing Engineering Technology.  While WWU offers an Engineering Technology degree, they do not have a mandate from the State Legislature to offer a bachelor degree in Engineering.  There is a proposal on the table that would allow them to transition to full Engineering status.  This proposal would have huge benefits to WWU, it’s Graduates ie: your sons & daughters, the community & the State.

Support Western Washington University

Support Western Washington University

I just received this notice from TAG, Technology Alliance Group for Northwest Washington.  TAG informs, represents & connects Whatcom area technology businesses & professionals.

As a parent, business person & residence of Whatcom County, I would ask you to read this information & act on it.

On February 14, TAG posted a letter from Western Washington Universityannouncing their proposal to the legislature to transition Western’s Engineering Technology programs to full Engineering status.

You may be aware that business and industry leaders across the state have advocated for more college graduates with bachelor degrees in Engineering. Washington will demand 282,140 STEM jobs by 2018, requiring a 24 percent increase in training; 7 percent above the national average (and 3rd overall). Western Washington University represents the most cost‐effective way to help meet that need.  Whatcom County already has a need for more engineers, and our need is growing.

Governor Gregoire included $7.6 million in her 2012 State Supplemental Budget to be divided between the University of Washington and Washington State University to address this concern. Western Washington University was not included in the Governor’s budget, but the legislature could choose to include funding for Western in its budget.

Western would add an additional 85 to 100 Engineering graduates to the state total every year if the upgrade is made to move these three programs from Engineering Technology to industry-ready Engineering Degree status.

You can help make a difference.  Send your letter of support today and make your voice heard.  You can use the talking points that Western provided to make letter-writing easy.  Then visit their Action Page where you can enter your address and quickly email your letter to all relevant representatives in just a few clicks.

It’s that easy!

But please, act quickly.  The vote could happen as soon as this weekend.  There’s no time to waste, simply:
