Investing in higher education drives a strong economy

Tribute Campaign in honor of 2020 Stanley O. McNaughton Leadership Award Recipient Kim Herman

Join the Washington Higher Education Facilities Authority (WHEFA) staff and friends in recognizing Kim Herman with a special tribute gift in honor of his announced retirement and his 35 years of service to the 10 independent colleges in Washington. Mr. Herman is also the recipient of the 2020 ICW Stanley O. McNaughton Leadership Award, the association’s highest award.

All tribute gifts will be pooled to create a named or endowed scholarship* in his honor.

*Should pooled gifts fall below established minimums, all contributions will be applied to an existing scholarship fund of his choice.
