Kicking off the New School Year: Meeting Times and Other Info!

Hello Huskies! Welcome to the new school year; we hope your first week was great! If you missed our HSPA table at the club fair this week, don’t worry! You can learn all about the fun activities we have planned for this year at our first meeting on Monday, Sept. 29th at 5:00 PM in Sav 132. Meetings will be held every other Monday at this time and location, so come enjoy snacks, games, activities and warm company all quarter long!

Thank You

Sunday was beautiful, in so many ways. Thank you to everyone who supported the Husky Help & Hope Walk. We are encouraged by our successes (among them, more than 300 participants and more than $7,500 for campus initiatives!), and look forward to continue working for this cause alongside Forefront.

See the front page of intheforefront.org to read a recap of the day, and special thanks to Alex Tran for the great article and Sarah Rothman for taking beautiful photos!

Post-walk updates coming soon….stay tuned.

Historic day in Olympia

Today, Governor Inslee signed ESHB 2315 into law, making Washington the first state in the country to require suicide prevention training for doctors and nurses. HSPA members Beau, Collin, and Juliana helped to advocate for this bill last month, and all of us at HSPA are so grateful to Forefront for organizing these phenomenal, historic efforts.

Winter quarter is wrapping up fast! Our final meeting of the quarter will be this Monday, March 10 at 5pm. Please note this is not a general meeting – it is a specific planning meeting for the H3 Walk. If you’re interested in taking a leadership role in planning the walk, we definitely encourage you to attend! Otherwise, look out for an end-of-quarter email toward the end of this week with details about how you can help, and about other events/information.

Thank you all for a great quarter! We’re looking forward to spring. And please remember to save the date for the H3 Walk (Sunday, May 18) – our registration link will be up soon!
