Going Green at the Bratton Tennis Center

It is so cool to see Whitman continuing to strive towards environmental stewardship. We have already been recognized for our use of wind power from turbines in the hills surrounding Walla Walla and now our very own indoor courts are home to a huge array of solar panels!

Katie - finishing her college career strong with All-NWC scholar athlete award
Alex - highest female GPA of female varsity athlete's at Whitman!
