EWU Trustees Appointed

Governor names two...board of trustees

CHENEY, Wash. - Washington Gov. Christine Gregoire has appointed The Honorable Robert H. Whaley to serve on the board of trustees at Eastern Washington University. Gregoire also appointed Paul Tanaka to a second term on the board.

Whaley is a United States District Court Judge for the Eastern District of Washington who assumed senior status in 2009. He begins his term immediately, and it will continue through Sept. 30, 2017. Whaley is a graduate of Princeton University and Emory University School of Law. Before his appointment to the federal bench, he was a Spokane County Superior Court judge and had his own private practice in Spokane for 20 years.

"I am honored to serve as a trustee for Eastern Washington University," said Judge Whaley. "As a longtime resident of Spokane, I am aware of and appreciate the valuable contributions the university and its students have made in our state and throughout the world. In these times of economic strain on personal, state and federal resources, it is important to preserve the opportunities for students to receive a quality higher education."

Whaley replaces Neil McReynolds, who completed his two terms on the board Sept. 30.

Tanaka is the former county administrator officer for King County and is a graduate of Yale University. His original appointment came in 2002, to fill the remaining term of a former trustee.

During his tenure on the Eastern board, Tanaka has served as chair, and currently presides over the Advancement Committee. "I am very grateful to Gov. Gregoire for my reappointment, and I look forward to continuing to work with the board of trustees on the critical issues facing Eastern Washington University," said Tanaka. "Eastern is blessed with an outstanding president, faculty and staff, all working together to ensure that our students receive the best possible educational experience. I feel fortunate to be part of this team." 

Trustees on the board work with President Rodolfo Arévalo to set the strategic direction of Eastern, serve as advocates for the university and help ensure that EWU is academically and financially accountable and successful.
