Memorial service, scholarship fund to honor LWIT president

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

Lake Washington Institute of Technology (LWIT) will hold a public memorial honoring the life and accomplishments of college President Dr. David Woodall at 11 a.m., Sept. 27, in the LWIT library. Dr. Woodall passed away from an apparent heart attack on Sept. 3, 2012.

“Dr. Woodall cared deeply for our college family, the community, our business partners and, above all, our students,” said LWIT Board of Trustees Chair Bruce J. Reid. “We planned this service around the first week of the fall quarter as it would only be fitting that our students be offered the opportunity to join our faculty, staff and surrounding community in celebrating Dr. Woodall’s life.”

As Dr. Woodall believed passionately in involving LWIT students at every turn, students from LWIT’s Funeral Service Education, Environmental Horticulture, Culinary Arts, and Multimedia Design & Production programs are planning and conducting the service.

Money in this fund will be used to help realize those visions he shared with us, including increasing scholarship support for LWIT students.
