Core Values Scholarship
We are happy to announce Samuel Glomstad-Foster as our new 2013-14 Core Values Scholarship recipient! Sam is a junior majoring in physical education and is on the WSU track team.
The core values of the WSU Foundation are:
|An obligation to honesty and openness with accountability, not only to ourselves but to others.
|A reliance upon the professionalism of our colleagues with acknowledgement that all are equally valued.
|A commitment to enhancing trust, respect and diversity.
|A practice of personally performing to a standard that is always exceptional.
These values were identified in a collective effort by WSU Foundation staff members to take ownership of the organization’s philosophy.
The purpose of the Core Values Scholarship is to support an undergraduate student who exemplifies the core values of the WSU Foundation. In keeping with the core value of relationships, the WSU Foundation is hopeful of the following outcomes:
- To enhance the recipient’s understanding of the WSU Foundation and how the organization carries out its mission for the university, and
