Lake Washington Institute of Technology (LWIT) will hold a public memorial honoring the life and accomplishments of college president Dr. David Woodall on Sept. 27 at 11 a.m., in the LWIT Library at 11605 132nd Ave. N.E. in Kirkland.
Woodall died from a heart attack on Sept. 3.
"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 in a press release. "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 Woodall believed in involving LWIT students at every turn, students from LWIT's Funeral Service Education, Environmental Horticulture, Culinary Arts and Multimedia Design and Production programs are planning and conducting the service.
