Former Chewelah librarian honored by Washington State before big win over USC…
If you’ve met former Chewelah Librarian Sarah English, you know she’s a WSU Cougar fan.
While now working up in Colville, English left a Crimson and Gray imprint in Chewelah with her positive attitude and ending of every conversation with “Go Cougs!”
Well WSU has taken note. Recently she was honored with a WSU Outstanding Service Award which was granted by the Washington State Board of Trustees.
The award was given to English “for her spirited generosity and unwavering loyalty to WSU. With her infectious smile and bright spirit, Sarah gives her all for WSU.”
English is the president of the Northeast Washington Cougar Alumni Association and on the Cougar alumni board as well as a Scholarship chair.
The former Chewelah librarian attended Washington State between 1991-1996 and majored in journalism and elementary education.
She is also on the advisory board for the College of Education and a regular volunteer for Northwest Public Radio and Television part of the Edward R. Murrow School of Communication at the school.
English also writes a WSU article for the Chewelah Independent for every home game in Pullman. You can see her latest article on Page 14.
English no doubt celebrated the honor by watching the Cougars defeat No. 5-ranked USC in Pullman last Friday night.
English will continue to provide WSU-themed articles for The Independent as the season goes on!
