This morning the Washington Senate opened by recognizing the long career and dedication to higher education of Dr. Rudolpho Arevalo.
Earlier this month Dr. Arevalo announced that he would retire this academic year as the President of Eastern Washington University (EWU).
Several members of the Senate rose to speak about the contributions and service Dr. Arevalo has provided to Washingtonians during his tenure at EWU. The resolution passed by the Senate recognized Arevalo’s contributions to the community and state with a special emphasis on his tireless work around the creation of opportunities and the advocacy for access to higher education for students from across the state.
On a more personal note, many of the Senators spoke to the integrity, humility, and kindness that is Dr. Arevalo. Recognized as a true gentleman, Dr. Arevalo’s footprint on EWU and higher education in Washington will continue well after he leaves.
