Shumway — Vancouver School of Arts and Academics grad Hunter Stuehm was selected by Gov. Jay Inslee to serve a one-year term as the student trustee at Western Washington University. Stuehm graduated in June with a bachelor of arts and majored in communication sciences and disorders with a minor in linguistics. In his final year as an undergraduate, Stuehm worked alongside assistant professor Douglas Sladen as a research assistant, studying speech perception abilities of adults with single-sided deafness and cochlear implants. He plans to begin Western’s doctor of audiology program this fall. “Hunter has demonstrated outstanding student leadership and his perspective will enrich the Western Washington University board of trustees,” Inslee said in a release from the school. “Hunter will bring the crucial student voice and perspective to the board and help communicate decisions and their impacts back to the student body.”
