Raven Java-McCandless, Your EWU Libraries' Student Liaison for 2018-2019
I'm currently a senior at EWU majoring in English literature. I was born in Wenatchee, WA but moved to Goldendale, WA in 8th grade. Some day I hope to be a librarian myself, because of the passion I've found in the library while working here. I hope to encourage students to take advantage of all of the great resources that the library has to offer, and to understand that it is more than just a place to study. The library stands as a great community, and the people who work here are all invested in student success.
Justin Heller, Media Manager for 2018-2019
I run the social media platforms for EWU Libraries. I am currently a senior at EWU majoring in history with a minor in political science. I was born in Sioux City, IA, but I spent most of my life in Portland, OR. Go Blazers! I transferred here my sophomore year and have loved it ever since. I am the Vice President of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity here at Eastern, I joined because I wanted to be more involved in the community and for the amazing brotherhood. My favorite things about EWU is going to the football games, and all the opportunities I’ve been given. One day I hope to become a professor of history, I have a passion for Asian American history and one day hope to share that with my students.
Abbi Vance, Graphic Designer for 2018-2019
I'm the Graphic Designer of the Dream Team. I'm a senior working towards a BFA degree in Visual Communication Design with a User Experience Certificate. My dream is to work for Nike or Disney doing packaging and/or promotional & marketing design. In my three years at Eastern I have volunteered over 350 hours for the Eagle Ambassador Club on campus. In my free time I enjoy reading, photography and hanging out with my cat, Bella.
