Emily Arneson '06

Emily Arneson '06 has Whitman, quite literally, in her blood: her grandparents, James '50 and Mary Null Boule '50, met and married at Whitman. Arneson was a Sociology major with a French minor and a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma. She studied abroad in Paris and worked in the bookstore all four years in college, including as its student manager. She has spent the last six years in her home town of Spokane with her daughters McKenzie, Addison and Avery.

Arneson earned her law degree from the University of Washington School of Law and, after seven years as an attorney in private practice, serves as the Community Ombudsman and Accessibility Officer for the Spokane Transit Authority. She serves on the board of the United Way Emerging Leaders Society and has served a variety of roles in the Junior League of Spokane as well as the Spokane Young Lawyers Division of the Spokane County Bar Association. Additionally, she is an associate class representative for the Annual Giving Office.

"I feel a responsibility to give back to Whitman, as it has given so much to me; serving on the Alumni Board would be an ideal way for me to support the College," Arneson says. "I believe that alumni are the strongest ambassadors of an institution, as the successes of the alumni reflect upon the quality of education provided by the school."
