Secretary Wyman capped her successful 14-campus College Civics tour Wednesday with visits to Tacoma Community College, University of Washington Tacoma, Bellevue College and the University of Washington’s main campus in Seattle. Here she is shown meeting with about 30 students during her morning stop at Tacoma CC. Pierce County Auditor Julie Anderson is at her side.
During the statewide tour, Wyman has talked with students about the importance of voting and being involved in campus life and the community.
Many college students like to talk politics. Even more like to eat pie. When you combine the two, you end up with a fun event like the Pie & Politics gathering at Skagit Valley College Tuesday afternoon. SVC culinary students baked the pies for the occasion. Secretary Wyman is shown answering a question at the event as Mount Vernon Mayor Jill Boudreau listens. The visit to SVC was the third of four stops that Wyman is making Tuesday as part of her College Civics tour. She visited Whatcom Community College and Western Washington University this morning in Bellingham. Tonight Wyman meets with students at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma. The College Civics tour ends Wednesday with stops at Tacoma Community College, University of Washington Tacoma, Bellevue College and the University of Washington’s main campus in Seattle.
Secretary Wyman hit the road Monday to continue her spring College Civics tour. Here she is pictured chatting with a Central Washington University student on the Ellensburg campus. The day began with a visit to Wenatchee Valley College at Omak before stopping at CWU. Wyman then headed east for visits to Spokane Falls Community College and Eastern Washington University. The tour continues Tuesday with visits to Whatcom Community College, Western Washington University, Skagit Valley College and Pacific Lutheran University.
During his visit to Yakima Valley Community College, Secretary Reed turned into Alex Trebek and hosted what has become a tradition at YVCC — a game of Civics Jeopardy in which students are the contestants. The winner was Kanisa Regan (below), who is pursuing a business degree at the college. We have no idea who that stiff-looking guy is standing next to Kanisa!
When Secretary Reed arrived at Yakima Valley College for the latest stop of his annual college civics tour, he and the students were greeted with cookies on sticks that carried the main message of the tour.
After devoting much of April to his annual college civics tour, Secretary Reed began May by resuming the tour with a visit to Central Washington University in Ellensburg. While at Central, Reed met with students at a campus event also attended by CWU President James Gaudino and Kittitas County Auditor Jerry Pettit. Secretary Reed visits Yakima Valley College on Wednesday.
Secretary Reed is still traversing the state on his annual college civics tour to talk with students about the importance of voting and being involved with their community. While in Walla Walla Thursday, he did an interview at Whitman College’s radio station, KWCW, with student Zach Duffy (right) and Whitman College President George Bridges. Reed’s other stops that day included Columbia Basin College, Walla Walla Community College and Walla Walla University.
Bellingham was a busy destination for Secretary Reed on his annual college civics tour. After attending events late Wednesday at Northwest Indian College and Western Washington University in B-ham, Reed began the day with visits to Bellingham Technical College and Whatcom Community College (pictured above) in the morning before heading south for stops at Pierce College in Puyallup, Green River Community College in Auburn and the University of Washington’s branch campus in Tacoma.
During his morning visit to Tacoma Community College, Secretary Reed and others donned fake mustaches to fit in with students there who wore Western clothing and mustache buttons saying “Voting Looks Good on You.” Reed also is visiting Bates Technical College, Clover Park Technical College, Pierce College in Steilacoom and Pacific Lutheran University on the fourth day of his annual college civics tour.
Secretary Reed is spending the second day of his annual college civics tour in King County, visiting North Seattle Community College, Shoreline CC, Edmonds CC, University of Washington Bothell/Cascadia CC and Bellevue College before heading south to Pierce County to meet with students at The Evergreen State College’s branch campus in Tacoma. Here he is shown with a group of students at Shoreline.
