What Are Walla Walla Supervisors Saying about Whitties?

“Haley is just amazing! She tackles any project well, always with a positive attitude, and is willing to put herself out there, in terms of stretching her own comfort zone when it is new material to her. She has been the most enjoyable student I have ever worked with!”

“Evan is quick to learn and understand new information, responsible about fulfilling assignments on time, and most of all enthusiastic about his work. . . he is on the cusp of being ready to take over and run the $mart Business Partner Program himself this coming semester”
