EWU is Best

Published: March 25, 2014

CHENEY, Wash. - Eastern Washington University has been recognized as the "Best of the West" in two categories by the West Plains Chamber of Commerce, which announced the 2014 winners at a recent ceremony with more than 250 attendees.

Categories ranging from Non‐Profit of the Year to Person of the Year were included in the nomination and voting process resulting in a total of 19 groupings.

EWU won first place in the "Best of the West" Community Relations category, and the university's College of Science, Health & Engineering won first place in the Innovative Practices category.

The chamber's goal is to promote community and economic development by consistently bringing together people from all sectors - including business, education, nonprofits, the county, surrounding cities and the military.

The winners were nominated and then voted upon by their West Plains colleagues. This year there were 79 nominations and 319 ballots. For the full list of winners, visit
