I CHENEY FREE PRESS Thursday, December 3, 2015 EDUCATION FROM STAFF AND NEWS REPORTS Manning and Finley named EWU board of trustees Jay Manning, former director of the Washington State Department of Ecology and an Eastern Wash- ington University alumnus, has been appointed to the university's board of trustees by Gov. Jay Inslee, effective through Sept. 30, 2021. Manning, who also served as chief of staff for former Gov. Christine Gregoire, is currently a part- ner with Cascadia Law Group in Olympia where he focuses on environmental and energy issues. "I am thrilled to join the board of trustees for East- ern Washington University," Manning said in a news release. "I am well acquainted with decision making and budget building in Olympia, and I look forward to working with President Dr. Mary Cullinan and the board to make sure Eastern fares well in the legisla- tive process." Manning replaces Jo Ann Kauffman, who com- pleted her second term on the board in September. Inslee has also appointed Michael Finley to the board for a six-year term. Finley was first appointed in 2014 to complete the term of former trustee Mark Mays, who passed away. Finley earned both his bachelor's and master's degrees from Eastern. Born and raised in Inchelium, Wash., Finley is an enrolled member of the Confeder- ated Tribes of the Colville Reservation and is a two- time chairman of the Colville Business Council. continued from page 2 West. He also said the media has exaggerated ISIS' large numbers. "This (ISIS) is not a big army," Sheriff said. "It is a threat, but it is a criminal organization. Is the U.S. government really treating ISIS as a threat or a balancer? I would argue as a balancer." When asked what impact it will have on upcoming elections, Pirch hasn't heard any evidence the Paris attacks will affect them. Sharifi's opinion differed from Pirch's. He said there is a trend where the United States tries to look tough with no rational behind it. He explained that the intellectual com- munity knew the United States was going to create a vacuum when it invaded Iraq and left it a failed state. He added that the West has the mili- tary capability to defeat ISIS. "This is how we dealt with al-Qaeda," Sharifi said. "So as long as we are on a campaign for political toughness, we are pretty much repeating a mistake." A1-Assad's regime in Syria is another factor. Sheriff said some people will support al- Assad because there is "no alternative." "A1-Assad is more popular among his social base than he was six years ago," Sharifi said. "Russia wants Assad to go, but not the institution. Russia and the United States are on the same page, but President Obarna hasn't shown backbone on this issue."

Staff is infusing so- cial studies and a little math into English Lan- guage Arts. AtWestwood Middle School, staff is conducting student learn- ing protocol visits that are specific to differentiation. "We' re constantly try- ing to improve," Nanny said. "Teaching in the mid- dle happens a lot at the middle school and because our language arts classes are not leveled, you have to find ways to differentiate," At Cheney High School, staff is having students create a portfolio. Every year students will create one writing piece for college that's going to follow them throughout their high school careers. The high school also pur- chased 120 Chromebooks for its Language Arts De- partment for students to use for research, writing and editing. "They're going to re- duce the amount of pa- per they use, get imme- diate feedback on their writing and have that digital classroom set up," Nanny said. "Instead of buying a textbook that's going to sit on a shelf, they've bought some- thing that will open up the world to students."
