And the award goes to …

Congratulations to Chris Voigt of the Washington State Potato Commission and the “Washington Grown” team! They are the 2024 recipients of the Northwest Regional Emmy® Award in the Informational/Instructional – Long Form Content category.

A group of five people who are dressed formally stand together holding an award.

A short but busy week

After a day full of meetings, I head to Pasco and Kennewick for a couple of days. In Pasco I will meet with the Dairy Farmers of Washington, then join some of the members for a tour of Ruby Ridge Dairy.

Brief slowdown

This week seems like “summer” despite the fact that temperatures dipped low enough over the weekend that the heat came on. The meeting schedule is a bit light this week, but I am not complaining.

Four people stand together next to a railing. Pictures are on the wall behind them.

Planning for success

I missed the Aurora Borealis this past weekend, though I was looking for it each night. Perhaps we sometimes miss what’s right in front of us.

The final week

It is finals week. Just a few short exams and many celebrations before campus becomes quieter and students put their acquired skills and knowledge to work.
