College of Western Idaho (CWI) is happy to recognize Heather Grayson as CWI’s November Staff of the Month award winner.

Heather’s other roles include being a part of our Safety Committee, the CARE team, and a board member of Idaho Partnership of Higher Education and Disability.

Her nomination notes, “Heather Grayson exemplifies the core values of CWI. Heather often times has to make difficult decisions on what accommodations she can provide a student, so she always has to act with integrity. As new technology comes along Heather has to stay up to date to provide students with the best services possible, she thinks of innovative ideas, and is innovating for the 21st century. Heather helps [students] navigate the path to success and helps to leave a legacy of learning. “

Grayson spent 17 years in South Korea, were her parents were stationed in the military. She loves music and traveling. Grayson just got back from vacation in Reykjavik, Iceland where she attended the Iceland Airwaves 2016 Music Festival and got to travel around the country for nine days. In her free time, she is mostly hanging out with friends or downtown catching a show at the smaller concert venues.

Please join in congratulating Heather for this honor.
