January 17, 2019

Samantha Grapes has been recognized as College of Western Idaho’s (CWI) Staff of the Month for December 2018. Recently celebrating her nine-year anniversary at the College, she has worked continuously as the Curriculum Management Coordinator in the Registrar’s Office. Grapes came to CWI with a Bachelor of Science in English from Brigham Young University-Idaho and is currently researching graduate schools and fields of study. Her peers praise her amazing attention to detail and quality. One coworker stating, “Sam is always taking on work, communicates professionally, and shows empathy. I look to her as an example when I deal with other people.” Staff and faculty recognize her as an expert in her job and one others rely on for keeping them on track.

Grapes is a proud cat mom to two, adorable calico kitties and has many fun facts about herself. These facts range from her love of the movie, “Scream”, which culminated with a memorative tattoo, being a huge WWF fan in high school, and traveling to England three times in her life. Her creation of a holiday in her younger years called “Appreciation Day” to express gratitude and celebrate her friends and family with thank you cards, shows her thoughtfulness and sincerity.

Please join us in congratulating Samantha on her accomplishment!
