Haslam Honored with August Staff Award

August 28, 2015

College of Western Idaho (CWI) is pleased to name Heather Haslam its Staff of the Month recipient for August.

Haslam has been with CWI for almost eight months. She began her tenure at CWI as an Administrative Assistant I and currently serves as Administrative Assistant III for Academic Affairs at the Canyon County Center. Haslam was nominated for displaying the core values of Acting with Integrity and Serving All in an Atmosphere of Caring. Her nomination notes, “she is creating bridges and opportunities for developing relationships.” It also states “she emanates positivity. She has created a more inviting break room for faculty and staff, implemented activities and social events to bring employees together, and provides thoughtful and regular communication to the occupants of [Canyon County Center]. She is one of our shining stars!”  

Haslam says she loves her job and is blown away by the incredible people she works with, and for. She enjoys being the messenger and implementer of her colleagues’ awesome work. She stays, “there are more than a dozen people who should be named here with me, if not instead of me. It’s their ideas, support, influence, participation, and guidance that I simply get to put into action. I have a front row seat to greatness and I get to watch it happening around me all day long.”   

She has been married for 18 years to her husband Randy. She has a 24-year old stepdaughter, Bree, who lives in southern California. She’s lived in Idaho, Montana, California, and Texas. One interesting fact she was willing to share is that she loves to eat ice cream when it’s really cold outside.

Please join in congratulating Heather for her Staff of the Month recognition. Thank you for all your hard work as a member of the CWI family.
