Laura Wintersteen-Arleth was one of two WSU instructors honored by Provost Dan Bernardo as Featured Faculty at the Oct. 21 football game against Colorado in Pullman.
Wintersteen-Arleth, a senior instructor in the WSU College of Nursing, said she spent most of the rainy, windswept game in the comfort of a suite at Martin Stadium. The Cougs won the homecoming game 28-0.
She and her fellow Featured Faculty honoree Aaron Whelchel, instructor and academic adviser in the Department of History, were recognized on the field during the game. Both were presented with a commemorative Coug football helmet.
Said Wintersteen-Arleth, “I love being an RN and get great joy and satisfaction being a part of the journey our students take to fulfill their dreams of serving others as RNs.” She added, “I am grateful to WSU for allowing me to reach my goals and to have an impact on our future healthcare providers.”
Wintersteen-Arleth was nominated by WSU College of Nursing Dean Joyce Griffith-Sobel. The nomination noted that Wintersteen-Arleth’s husband, Roger Arleth, was a strong supporter of WSU before he died a year ago and willed his body to the cadaver laboratory at the WSU Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine.
