WSDOT Wetlands Internship Field

Theory into Practice

Trace McKellips ’17, Jennifer MacDonald, and Field Lead Kristen Andrews ’08 survey the Upper Keechelus Lake mitigation site for WSDOT’s wetlands monitoring internship program.

Not so long ago, the mud on Kristen Andrews’ clothes might have been flour instead.

Andrews ’08 was working as a pastry chef when she realized it was time for a change. Tired of being cooped up in a kitchen and starting work well before dawn, Andrews decided to pursue a career in biology.

Evergreen visual arts faculty Alex McCarty and daughter Tierra McCarty carve one of the welcome gures for the Fiber Arts Studio.

Just Below The Surface

I. A GIFT FROM THE PAST

Alex McCarty reaches a few inches forward, picks up a curved knife, and digs into a wooden figure that will soon greet guests to Evergreen’s new Fiber Arts Studio. At the same time, he reaches back through the centuries for inspiration.

This is the part of carving Alex ’00, MiT ’02 likes best: When the beauty hidden below the surface begins to emerge.

Coming-Out Party

For National Coming Out Day, members of the  student group T-Rex (Transgender Resources and  Education X-travaganza!) set up a  “ closet ”  on Red  Square and invited students to come out in any  way they’d like.

Melanie White ’14 and tutor Eder Nuñez ’17 go house to house in the Hillside  community of Centralia, encouraging people to sign up for literacy classes.

Upwardly Mobile

In a garage-turned-classroom, Melanie White ’14 looks on as Eder Nuñez ’17 leads a literacy info session.

Why would a combo of Evergreen students and Olympia community groups convert a garage at a mobile home park into a classroom and outfit it with computers and a movie screen? It’s all part of an ambitious plan to enable residents of the Hillside community in Centralia, Wash. to improve their economic outlook through literacy, access to computer technology, and affordable home ownership.
