“Bankruptcy is a challenging process for any company and its stakeholders,” Ferguson said. “It is my priority to see that workers are paid fairly and timely for their labor.

“I am honored to be chosen as a Champion for Children by the Children’s Alliance,” said Kagi. “We know that half of Washington’s children show up to kindergarten unprepared. They are behind before they even start, and most never catch up,” continued Kagi.
“Reaching children early in their lives through quality early learning has a profound impact on their future chances of success.”
“Quality early learning is the best investment we can make in our youngest Washingtonians and in the future of our state,” said Kagi. “I couldn’t be prouder of the accomplishments we made with the passage of the Early Start Act.”

Colleges like Shoreline work hard to reach students like this. They offer field trips to see the sites around Seattle.
Older students, like Winston Lee from Hong Kong, teach them how to navigate this culture. Even things like negotiating over a used-car price.
"While we should all be relieved that Shell Oil decided not to drill in the Arctic, this will not be the last proposal to drill for fossil fuels in that region, posing both local and global environmental risks.

“It’s a testament to how much these professionals care about the success of the students that they’re willing to share their time in this manner,” Petruzzella said. “And the Career Seminar course only serves to strengthen Shoreline’s stellar relationship with and reputation within the CET community as employers get a firsthand look at the caliber of student we produce.”
“Students come to a professional/technical program because they want to go to work,” said Petruzzella. “The CET program’s career seminar can help them do just that.”
“With the only CET program in the Puget Sound region, Shoreline students already have a leg up entering the industry,” said Petruzzella. “The Career Seminar class is just another way we help our students capitalize on success.”
