Nezperce resident honored by WSU
Four Washington State University staff and three students will be honored during this year’s Safety, Health and Security Fair happening Oct. 22 at the Compton Union Building in Pullman.
Each recipient will be recognized at the Presidential Awards ceremony scheduled to begin at 12:15 p.m. inside the CUB Senior Ballroom. More information on the fair can be found online.
Awards will be distributed across each of the fair’s areas—safety, health and security—as well as an overall award.
One of those honored was Sunday Henry, director of Athletic Medicine at WSU. She led the department in providing exceptional healthcare and prioritizing the mental health of student athletes. Under her leadership, Athletic Medicine increased mental health staffing by nearly 500 percent, providing annual mental health screenings for all student-athletes.
Dr. Sunday Henry is the daughter of Fred and Mary Ann Hess of Nezperce and was mentored by Drs. Ron Sigler and Andrew Jones of St. Mary’s Hospital as well as other doctors there.
