Event Recap | Annual State of School Address & Community Design Session

On March 4th, 2022, the Evans School hosted the first annual State of the School Address where Dean Jodi Sandfort offered her reflections on 2021, the School’s 60th anniversary, and shared insights and encouraged conversation about where we are aiming our efforts and priorities in 2022. This event featured Dean’s Council members Eduardo Campos and Absa Samba as moderators.

After the State of the School Address, community members engaged in a Community Design Session with Dean Sandfort. This session provided an opportunity to continue the conversation and built upon the future state as outlined in the State of the School address. Faculty, staff, student leaders, and community volunteers participated in the dynamic session to crowd-source ideas and resources in service to the people stepping into and leading innovative school projects and initiatives on nine topics:

  • Evident WA
  • WA Courts
